    Has anyone tried using a weighted medicine ball? You can do things in your chair, like twisting - if you move your chair against a wall, try to hit the wall on both sides. You can do this standing but only if your balance is REALLY good...
    Hold the ball straight out in front of your chest, then make figure 8s with it.
    The heavier the ball, the more challenging it will be. But you should start to feel your core muscles pretty quickly.

    The objective is to balance your self on the ball using your core muscles.

    My PT also instructed me to lay on my back, knees bent with feet on the floor/matt Lift your butt off the floor and tilt your pelvis upward. and repeat as many times as you can This is a great core strengthening exercise.
    when lifting butt off the floor am I pushing down with my feet or lifting up with my abs?

    I use a medicine ball as part of my shoulder routine. I use the two and three lb. ball. It will really work the little muscles in the shoulder that we have a hard time working. Especially if you grip the ball with just your fingertips. Its a great inexpensive workout.

    Patrick, what do you do for your shoulder routine? I need to start something so I would appreciate as much detail as you can provide. Thanks.
