A gym ball is a useful exercise device. With it, you can develop balance, strengthen the muscles of the cortex, back and abdomen - the muscles that support the spine in all its movements. Strong core muscles play a major role in gaining good posture. Recently, the gymnastic ball has migrated from gyms to the space of residential and office premises. People use this ball as a chair to strengthen the muscles of the core, which is also called “active sitting,” because you have to strain all your muscles. However, improper use of the gym ball can do more harm than good. This article will tell you how to use [URL=""][COLOR=#000000][FONT=Arial]ball chair for yoga[/FONT][/COLOR][/URL].

If you have an average body weight and your height is below 160 centimeters, then you should buy a ball with a diameter of 55 centimeters. If your height is between 160 and 183 (cm), then pick up a ball with a diameter of 65 (cm). If you are above 183 (cm), then get a ball with a diameter of 75 (cm).

Sit on the ball, straighten your back, place your legs in front of you. The legs will be at an angle of 90 degrees relative to the hips.
At first, you can place your calves in front of you so that they touch the ball, which helps you control your balance while learning to sit on the ball. Later, you can move the calves away from the ball, which will allow the muscles of your cortex to get involved.

Bend your elbows and position your forearms at an angle of 90 degrees. Leaning a little forward, you will need to place them on the surface of the desktop.
If you use a computer, make sure that the monitor is at an angle of 90 degrees, because otherwise your neck will come out of a straight line of the spine, which will partially negate the effect of the gymnastic ball.

Practice the active sitting method. This is a condition where your body reacts to a change in the position of the ball in space by straining the corresponding muscles of the core in order to keep the ball in place. Tighten your abdominal muscles for added effect from the exercise.
