I never knew that an exercise ball should be a specific size for your height. Any I had ever seen or purchased were all one size – huge! This one I received from Live Infinitely as a complimentary sample for review, though much smaller to fit my 5’1″ frame, is heavy duty for sure. Even though it is about 6 inches (fully inflated size) smaller than my existing exercise ball it is heavier. You can feel when you touch and handle them that the Live Infinitely exercise ball is thicker, sturdier material. I do a lot of exercises which require me to pick up the exercise ball over my head, squat with it or hold it between my ankles while I lay on my back and raise it off the floor passing it to my hands and back. With the huge ball it was a bit ungainly, not heavy, just awkward to handle. This smaller ball gives me a few ounces of added weight but it’s easier to handle. Can I just say that the simple hand pump is one of the best I’ve ever used. I have a couple around the house and this one worked more effectively than any of the others.
The workout posters that LI provided after purchase are such a blessing. I tend to get stuck in a rut, not knowing how to work out next. These posters give me ideas for new exercises and proper form. It’s also nice to know that the ball isn’t in any danger of bursting if my kids decide to jump on me when I’m sitting on the ball since it supports up to 2200 lbs!
Which size is correct for me?
The exercise ball that you need depends on a few things – your height, leg length and purpose of the ball. The correct size exercise ball will allow for a 90-degree angle at your knees and your thighs to parallel the floor while sitting on top.
