9 www.coastingtoday.com.au COASTING FITNESS up a notch For more information, including details on exercise classes using Swiss balls, phone Lake Haven Recreation Centre on 4392 7677. 1In the starting phase, position your hands on the ball directly underneath your shoulders and get your body into straight alignment. 2Focus on keeping the ball stable as you ease down slowly onto the ball. You'll feel your core muscles, as well as your biceps and chest muscles, kicking into gear. 3Carefully return to the upright position, all the while maintaining shoulder stability. Consider adding three sets of 10 repetitions to your exercise routine. 11 SEP T i 16 SEP C c é 17 SEP Summ i by J B 17 & 18 SEP S y i ' i ick w k 25 SEP P i , c , cc i 2 OCT C y www.erinafair.com.au im y u w www.erinafair.com.au ERINA FAIR TO RESERVE BECOME A FRIEND OF TO 4 WEEKS OF FASHION YOUR FRONT ROW PASS E i F i i C C ' i yg u i w v u w k , y i giv w y u i ! Simple push-ups are widely regarded as the single most effective exercise for improving total body fitness. Combining the benefits of weight lifting, a cardio-vascular workout, and stretching, the humble push-up is not to be underestimated. And when you add a Swiss ball into the equation, the benefits for the stabilising muscles in the abdomen and lower back, as well as the chest, shoulders and arms, are huge. Sports science student Joel Henry, of Lake Haven Recreation Centre, at Gorokan, said that because of the instability of the ball, the body's core muscles are switched on and forced to work harder. Women, or beginners, could perform this exercise on their knees to reduce the degree of difficulty, he said.
