Bender Ball is a great way to exercise your core muscles. It’s an exercise method developed by Leslee Bender, a master trainer. The program uses a small ball placed between your body and the floor to help increase the range of motion of your ab work. It provides different movements that help you isolate and exercise your upper abs, your obliques (side abdominal muscles) and your lower abs.
The Bender Ball workout is up to 408% more effective than standard crunches!
The Bender Ball comes with a video that teaches you the Bender Method and how to get the best results from your Bender Ball. You also get a bonus video that shows you how the Bender Method can help you tone your buns and thighs too.
The Bender Ball also helps strengthen your back, because the extended range of motion allowed by the ball increases the workout given to your back muscles. This phase is called the “extension” phase, where your upper body goes BACKWARDS compared to your normal line of posture. Regular crunches and sit-ups only have the flexion phase, where you move your torso FORWARDS. Bender Ball does that too, but adding on the extension phase gives you a better workout for both your front (abs) and back muscles.
Bender Ball Video
This video shows you how the Bender Ball is placed underneath your body during your workout. You can even get a brief glimpse of how to use it to work lower abs and your obliques, too. Of course, you can see that better on the DVD (or VHS) that comes with the Bender Ball packages, but this lets you see it before you buy it. Take a look.
Why Use the Bender Ball
Normal crunches don’t really work the muscles that you are trying to define in order to get sculpted abs. The Bender method puts your body into the right position to selectively isolate the right muscles that you need to exercise to get the sexy look you want. It’s non-slip surface makes it easy to use, and it adjusts to your weight to give you just the right level of support. The small size of the ball fits right into the curve of your spine, making it more effective than those commonly-seen large exercise balls. Not to mention that it’s easier to store than a large ball! In fact, it’s small enough to carry with you when you travel.
How small is it? 8 inches in diameter, to be exact.
