Some Helpful Ideas And Tips:
Here are a few helpful ideas you need to consider when purchasing an exercise ball.
First off, when you're looking for the perfect one to purchase, you need to be sure you have one that has no holes, scrapes, punctures, or any kind of these rips and tears in it.
Obviously you don't want to buy a messed up exercise ball, but the main reason to check, is because there could be an unseen rip or puncture, that could potentially cause the ball to start deflating the second you use it for the first time.
For this reason, its good to check and be sure you aren't wasting any money, because the abdominal exercises found on this site require the strongest, most durable exercise ball you can find.
Even the slightest, rip or scrape that's unseen to the human eye, can be a huge devastation to your ab workouts.
Measure Exercise Ball Before Purchase:
The second thing to consider when buying a workout ball, is that you need to get one that is exactly the height of your knees, or even buy one that's just about up to the height of your knees.
The reason for this, is because you don't want one any bigger or smaller, since the size of the ball can really have an impact of the workout your abdominals get.
You don't want to be too far from the ground or too close to the ground, but you want an exercise ball that is just about up to your knees, so that your abdominals really get the maximum workout.
It really doesn't hurt to take an extra few minutes to measure the height of the ball, because its better you get the absolute best workout for your abs, than to have the ball be ineffective for your results, and have you waste money on an exercise ball that won't give you complete results.
Take That Extra Safety Precaution:
The third thing I consider, is that you look into spending about 4 to 5 extra bucks to buy a burst-resistant ball. What this means, is that the ball lasts longer, because it has a special design to it.
The burst-resistant ball is much more less prone to popping or "bursting" because it has a unique design to it, that makes it so that if there is any kind of small hole or puncture in the ball, that the ball won't just burst, but slowly deflate, so you can quickly solve the problem, and not go flying across the room from a bursting exercise ball.
I highly consider that you spend a mere $5 and get the burst resistant ball, because its much better than having to keep going back to the store and wasting money on a whole new exercise ball.
Check Daily For Any Damages:
When you actually have the exercise ball in your possession, and have used it for a while or even just a few workouts, you need to be sure you check it for and rips, tears etc. at least daily, or every time you perform your workout.
It's much better to play it safe, so you know if the ball is starting to deflate, or if its near deflating, so that you can save yourself from having to buy another exercise ball.
Why leave it un-checked and have to potentially buy another one, when you can just check it daily and pump it up if need be? So my advice, play it safe and check the exercise ball every time you workout.
Save Lots Of Money With A Pump:
My next piece of advice for you, is that you also make sure the exercise ball comes with a special pump that is designed for that ball specifically.
It's far better to know you have a pump handy and ready in those times of need, than to have a hole or puncture in your ball, and have no way of repairing the deflation.
I also consider you pump it up every single time you notice that the exercise ball is starting to deflate a little bit, because its better to spend a couple extra minutes pumping it up to always have it at maximum inflation, rather than have it deflate during your workout.
Just be sure you're always taking care of the exercise ball and watching for any kind of damage to repair.
