    Dude, fuck the stability ball. Those things are for fucking guido cock suckers and their personal trainers. They have little practical application except in physical therapy for rehab after serious injury. You want to get a strong core and stability? Do strict military presses, ass to grass front squats, jerks, overhead squats with dumbbells, snatches, good mornings, etc.

    There are a few good exercises you can do with a stability ball, but you shouldn't be doing your whole workout on it!

    try this

    get in position like you're going to do situps, put you feet under something or get someone to hold them down...get a 10lb or 25lb weight, tilt back a little and go back and forth from side to side touching the weight on the ground next to your butt...go as fast as you can while keeping rhythm, shit will make your core hurt like no other, man

    from the world's leading spine researcher, Stuart McGill

    "Some longitudinal studies have shown that the more flexibility one has in the back, the greater the risk is of having future back troubles, at least in normal people."

    "Flexion and rotational stretching overloads the annulus fibers often exacerbating the spinal tissues which can occur unbeknownst to the individual. Yet they continue the practice reporting that it 'feels good.' They are perceiving stretch, probably via the muscle based stretch receptors, which provides the illusion of something helpful. Generally they are ensuring that they remain chronic and will not make advances until stretching is stopped! Solomonow's group (2003) have shown that static stretching of the spine ligaments can cause muscle spasms and diminishes the stretch reflex. The reflex is a protective mechanism!"

    Hmmm, very interesting. I'm definitely guilty of the "it feels good" excuse!
