One Leg Stabilization

Stability ball work is all about progression. If you want to achieve the optimal benefits from any stability ball exercises you should master the very basic ones first. The one leg stabilization is perhaps the most basic exercise on the stability ball. By simply lifting one leg off of the floor while seated on a Swiss ball you will be forced to feel how your core is related to your balance. Feeling your core engaged is the most basic step you will need to achieve the benefits out of every exercise on the stability ball thus it must be mastered in this very basic movement. One leg stabilization is a great exercise to do during your first few workouts on stability balls as it will be mastered rather quickly opening the door for more intense and challenging exercises.
