Here are Three Pilates Ball Standing Exercises to Try Out:

Exercise #1: Ball between the ankles – Heel raise (knee straight)

Make sure the ball is fairly well inflated. Place the ball in between the ankles and squeeze it so it stays in place. Keep squeezing the ball as you raise yourself up onto your tiptoes and then lower back down.

Repeat: 3 x 10 times

Exercise #2: Ball between the knees – Squats

Place the ball in between your knees for some standing ball Pilates exercises to try at home.

Place the well-inflated ball in between your knees. Squeeze your knees to keep the ball in place while you bend and straighten your knees.

Repeat: 3 x 10 times

Exercise #3: Ball between the knees – Heel raise (knees bent)

As with the second exercise, place the ball in between your knees and squeeze it to keep it in place. Bend your knees so you’re in the squat position. Keep your knees bent and raise/lower your heels.

Repeat: 3 x 10 times
