Core strength stability ball with arms

The more effectively your upper body works, the faster you’ll be able to run. Performing the Core strength: Stability ball arms move isolates your upper body movements from those of your lower body, mimicking the resistance that you may feel on the run.


  • Kneel on the ball.
  • Use your feet for balance.
  • Keep your upper body upright.
  • Hold the position.
  • Swing your arms in a running motion while keeping
  • your balance.

Be safe:

Ensure there are no sharp objects around you which could cause an injury if you lost your balance.
