This has been so much fun focusing on different ways to get a good workout! Yesterday and the day before, I had a great time with Resistant Bands and the Stability Ball.
Funny story: A few years ago, I asked the manger of a Fitness Store if he had Big Blue Balls, LOLOL…embarrassing!!
DAY 10 SUCCESS
RESISTANT BANDS are elastic bands made of rubber tubing used for strength training. They are lightweight, portable, and space saving exercise equipment. Designed to effectively build muscle strength and tone the body, there are resistance bands for a variety of exercises that target specific muscle groups. They are usually color-coded according to the resistance levels they offer – extra-heavy, heavy, medium, light, or extra-light.
This was a crazy-good workout!

STABILITY BALL is a ball constructed of elastic soft PVC 14 to 34 inches) and filled with air. The air pressure is changed by removing a valve stem and either filling with air or letting the ball deflate. It is most often used in physical therapy, athletic training and exercise. It can also be used for weight training. The ball, while often referred to as a Swiss ball, is also known by a number of different names, including balance ball, birth ball, body ball, ball, fitness ball, gym ball, gymnastic ball, physioball, pilates ball, Pezzi ball, sports ball, stability ball, Swedish ball, therapy ball, or yoga ball.
