An outstanding DVD for Swiss Ball Exercises

"This Swiss Ball DVD is excellent value for money. There are so few DVDs/Videos or even books designed for Men using the Swiss Ball (although it's clear that this video is well suited for women too). The exercises are challenging and thorough and really represent a deep workout for the body. There can be no mistake on exactly how to do the exercises primarily due to constructive camera angles and the sheer definition of Adams physique. It's actually very useful to visually 'see' the muscles involved in each exercise and helps focus the mind on exactly which muscle are supposed to be doing the work.Having suffered from various back problems (including cyatica and scoliosis), these exercises present a safe way of developing crucial stabilising muscles. Previous to this, gym exercises on classic benches inevitably strained my back and have commonly led to relapses.... so far so good with this DVD.For men (and women) who are bored of going to the gym, get a Swiss Ball and this DVD (Adam also has one available solely working on Abs and lumbar muscles - which is also worthy of 5 stars). I'd sooner be doing ball exercises than using gym machines which can easily overstress the body. With these exercises it's actually quite difficult to go wrong, as if you do it wrong, you fall off (which is quite a laugh :-) )This DVD (and Swiss Ball Abs by Adam Ford) is spot on!"
A Good Introduction To Stability Ball

"Swiss ball basics is a 50 minute workout , there is only 10 exercises which are performed in 2 sets of about 10 reps , the instructor shows more advanced variations on the second set and does some stretches in between the sets. Though the exercises can be challenging , the workout is pretty slow paced and let you to concentrate in the exercises. The quality of this video is very good and it is filmed on a sanded area , the instruction is very good also and during the exercises there's some animated pointers.
I think if youre in a good shape you'd be better off just buying his "swiss ball abs" it has most of the exercises from swiss ball basics but it has 3x20 minute workouts in different levels (but there all pretty tough).
