Supreme 90 Day System Review: Ultimate Ball

Supreme 90 Ultimate Ball
Tom Holland, 2010 

Tom leads this 40 minute core workout in a lifting gym style set. Tom instructs PT style with 3 background exercisers actually performing all the moves. You will need a stability ball &  for this workout. The dvd is chaptered into warmup and workout (the warmup is the same for most the discs in this series) and the workout includes a cooldown. A countdown timer comes up for the final 5 seconds of the work portions.  

This workout is structured that you do 30 seconds of work followed by 30 seconds of rest. A background exerciser performs the next exercise during the break so we are ready to jump right back in after our rest. The S90 website says that this is a "minimal impact cardio workout on the ball" but there isnt really any cardio in it- its def a core workout. And Tom does a great job of incorporating the ball into all the moves. 

Exercises include: ball planks, seated ball bridge, knee pull ins, adducter squeeze, knee drop, single leg ball plank, walk outs, ball pikes, ball bridge, side crunches, core rotations, ball skier, rollout planks, and more! Using the ball really amped up the core work in this and added in some nice balance work.

I rate this is a solid intermediate stability ball workout. The moves were effective and unique. Ultiamate Ball is a great addition to this set. Tom is a great lead- very motivating.  Received this dvd to review.
