    The ball is good for a few things, but not as your entire workout.

    I use the ball for certain things, mainly stretching and balance work for crew. We do a few exercises on it, mostly body weight. The hardest thing to do on it is to jump onto the top of it and do squats.

    it's good for training stabilizers and stuff... but it's tough to do heavy work (i.e. heavy DB chest press) on, imo
