A Fitbod Favorite! Hug A Ball is a versatile exercise where you tightly hug a Stability Ball during crunches, squats, or lunges, enhancing core engagement and upper body activation. This addition of the Stability Ball introduces an element of resistance and instability, requiring increased muscle activation to maintain form and balance. It's particularly beneficial for strengthening the core, improving posture, and adding a unique challenge to traditional exercises, making it suitable for all fitness levels seeking to enhance their workout routine. 4, 8, 15, 16, 23 42
