Hard Core Sit-ups Jun 26, 2007
My personal trainer recommended using this smaller ball as support when doing sit-ups as it really works the core. Crunches and regular sit-ups tend not to work all the stomach muscles or is [....] the back. However, when used at base of your back, this ball really helps focus on the core muscles. I highly recommend this product.

great buy Apr 22, 2008
By T. Hipona
"little amazon woman"
I use this ball to do crunches. It works the muscles of the back in addition to the abs, and gives you amazing overall abdominal strength. It's the same product as the green Bender Ball that's advertised on TV (I bought one of those too, not as high quality). Only thing is it doesn't come with an excercise DVD, but you can buy one seperately (I just bought the "Pilates Mini-Ball Advanced Workout" coincidentally by Leslee Bender of the Bender Ball). There are many other things to do with this little guy besides abs. Very good quality and you really don't need a pump to inflate it! So cheap too!

Think small for good toning Dec 24, 2007
By Jules in SA
I ordered this mini exercise ball for use in my daily stretching. I use it every day for situps (pressed between my knees) and bicycles. I also use it to stretch backwards by arching my back over it from a sitting position. It provides good support. It is easy to keep in the living room, out of the way since it is small. Unfortunately my kids love it for a soccer ball. It did ship fast as promised. I'd recommend it.

Very pleased! The texture of the ball is very nice Apr 11, 2011
By Ali Julia
I ordered Fitball after doing Physical Therapy with it at the physical therapy office. I am undergoing PT for strengthening muscles after back surgery. This 9" ball has a great non-slip texture, it is some what coarse not just smooth plastic like the big exercise ball. It is pleasant to touch and stays where you put it very well.
My favorite exercise with it so far is double ball abdominal lift/crunch.
* Laying on my back and tighten your abdominal muscles and I squeeze the 9" inch ball with my knees, while holding the larger exercise balls with my feet.
* Then I raise the ball off the floor. To protect my lower back, I pull my bellybutton in toward my spine.
* Then I squeeze the ball between my knees for one deep breath.
* Return I return to the start position and repeat.
This exercise really gives a good burn!
In addition to the exercises I get at the PT office, I found additional information by googling for 'fit ball' exercises. The ones with video are almost as good as going to the physical therapy office as you see the correct way to do the exercises. For example, Mayo clinic has a nice set.
