Five of the most time-tested, popular types of exercise equipment include the dumbbell, kettlebell, medicine ball, yoga-stretching strap, foam roller. Let's go through them one by one to see how the Gravity Ball can imitate an exercise popularized by each type of equipment.
Yoga Strap - The Gravity Ball's two loop straps (the two non-adjustable straps located underneath the adjustable straps) are soft yet strong enough to make mobility movements and stretching possible and similar to those done by a yoga or stretching strap. The additional weight of the Gravity Ball also encourages you to stabilize and balance the weight so it doesn't fall to one side, thus making the movements more challenging.
Kettlebell - The two removable straps (when looped through each other to create one long strap with a clip on each end) can be attached to opposite sides of the ball using the attachment loops and carabiners. You essentially have a kettlebell! A benefit is you are won't be gripping a rough metal surface and instead will be holding onto the soft, nylon removable straps.
Foam Roller - Be sure the carabiners and removable straps are taken off before rolling on your Gravity Ball. Roll over the smoothest sessions and be sure to try it on the glutes and quads as the round shape helps it to get deep into the tissues. We recommend rolling on the lower body muscle groups only and avoiding the spine and upper body.
Dumbbell - The Gravity Ball's adjustable straps make it fun and easy to perform grip-free variations of classic dumbbell exercises such as the bicep curl (shown in the video). Other dumbbell-inspired exercises include front shoulder raises and chest flies
Medicine Ball - Many classic medicine ball exercises can be done with a Gravity Ball (you may opt use the adjustable straps to secure the ball to your hand) including this Gravity Ball push up variation, wood choppers and the squat press
These are just some of the ways a Gravity Ball can serve as a substitution for the medicine ball, kettlebell, dumbbell, yoga or stretching strap and a foam roller.
