Happy January everyone! After the holidays and my vacation, I am ready to get back to my regular exercise routine. I do all of my strength training workouts at home and one of my favorite pieces of equipment is my stability ball. The number of exercises you can do with this one item are endless! Today I am sharing a few of my go to’s in this Do Anywhere Full Body Stability Ball Workout.
