The Powerball is an inflatable and burst proof gymnastic ball. The Powerball can be used to strengthen abdominal and back muscles through safe, efficient and dynamic back and stability exercises. It is an air-filled and burst-proof ball made of Crylon®. The material is odorless, latex-free, very resilient (up to 500 kg) and made of 100% recyclable plastic.
What does it do?
It is used to strengthen the abdominal and back muscles, while also targeting muscles throughout the entire body. This is done through safe, effective and dynamic back and stability training. It can train the back muscles by sitting upright on top of the ball.
How does it work ?
While sitting on the ball, an upright posture is automatically adopted so as not to fall off the ball. At the same time, the pelvic, abdominal and back muscles are involuntarily used again and again to balance the ball while sitting. Instructions with specific exercise suggestions are enclosed in the product packaging.
In the event of damage by objects such as sharp edges, needles, glass splinters, scissors etc., the material of the ball skin prevents sudden tearing. The air comes out slowly through the hole. There is no risk of bursting, and injuries due to an unexpected fall are avoided
Characteristic features of the original anti-burst material:
Due to the special anti-burst material, the shape of the ball can change during use. This has no influence on the effect while sitting or the movement sequence during exercises. The decisive factor is the dynamics and the safety system of the ball, not its circular nature. About ten minutes after leaving the ABS® ball, the ball regains its round shape due to the restoring force of the material. Due to the packaging, an ABS® ball still has some wrinkles after it has been inflated. Due to the special safety material, these folds can also be permanently visible on an inflated ABS® ball. This does not affect functionality or security in any way.
The ball may also be used at work instead of sitting in a rigid office chair.
