It's true that using a fitness ball can make any exercises more challenging. But the more challenging the exercise the stronger you will become, making your workout more efficient. Working on an unstable surface, like a ball that can roll, means you must stabilize your core, so it doesn't take many reps before you begin feeling the work. Grab an exercise ball and a set of dumbbells (five to 10 pounds) and try these three moves. Repeat all three exercises for a total of three sets. Trust me, you'll have a ball with this workout.
