How to Use an Exercise Ball as a Chair

Exercise balls are not only used as training equipment, they can also be used as office chairs. Below are some guidelines you should follow to ensure you sit comfortably on an office chair.

  • The exercise balls are of different sizes. You are going to need one that is ideal for your height and weight. The exercise ball should be able to accommodate your weight, you do not want it to burst while you are sitting on it. It needs to be of the right height too. You will not be able to sit on it if it is too high. You will be uncomfortable if it is too low. Get an exercise ball that is the same height as the chair you normally use.
  • You are going to need a strong and burst resistant ball. The ball you get should have an extra strong layer between the inside cavity and the environment.  You have to appreciate that, offices have sharp objects like scissors, staples and paper clips, that could easily burst the exercise balls if they are too soft.
  • Pump the ball to a maximum diameter. You also need to ensure that you do not pump it until it is too hard. The ball needs to flatten a bit on the spot where you sit on it, but you do not want to sink too far in it either.
  • Always sit upright with your legs in front of you, to ensure you remain stable. The stability of the ball is also enhanced by the slight flattening at the top where you sit, and at the bottom where it touches the ground.
