Getting in Shape with Bender Ball

Posts Tagged ‘Melt It Off

I must admit that there are times that even I, the guy who is crazy about exercise, grows bored of my routine.  The Bender Ball sits in the corner for a few days, the crunchless abs are tossed aside and I just don’t have the motivation to do anything.  I’m always surprised when I get into these ruts – and even more surprised when I find a way to pull myself out.

What I try to remember, however, is that I do, eventually, always climb back out.  Life is a process and it’s not always easy to force yourself to comply with the routine you’ve established.  Sometimes, your body really does need that break.  And you can give it to yourself as long as it doesn’t turn into an extended vacation!  Just know that eventually you’ll be pulling the running shoes out, dusting off the Bender Ball and getting ready for action again.


I usually go walking in the evenings, and then come home and do about 10 minutes of crunchless abs with my Bender Ball.  When the summer months start, however, I find it hard to go walking when it’s so hot out.  All that I really want to do is to get into a pool!  So, why not?  I’ve started changing my routine so that I’m in the pool for my exercise routine rather than sweating it out on the track.

I’ve found a few helpful articles that direct the novice swimmer to create the right program to get started.  I’m following this routine and enjoying it a great deal – and my motto to melt it off still holds, even in the pool.  Swimming is actually very good exercise and I’m enjoying using this form of exercise as a break from my normal routine.  Give it a try and see if it works for you as well!

I’ve been very impressed with my multi-tasking abilities lately.  You know, women always say that men don’t multi-task well, and I do have to admit that this is generally true.  We tend to do one activity at a time, focusing all of our energies on that endeavor.

However, I’ve realized lately that I can really get my exercise routine in better when I multi-task.  So, now, when I watch television at night, I make sure to do crunchless abs with my Bender Ball at the same time.  When I help my son with his homework, I’ve got my jump rope out and jump while I answer his questions.

Obviously, I can’t multi-task my entire exercise routine, but I can certainly add another 20-30 minutes of exercise a day without really even feeling the impact on my time.  That’s the beauty of crunchless abs, the Bender Ball and a jump rope – they can all go along wherever I am, and they can be incorporated into any routine!

Unlike my wife and teenage daughters, I’m just not someone who is going to spend hours in a gym sweating it off.  But I do know how important exercise is.  That is why I was so excited to learn about the Bender Ball.  Bender Ball exercise is really different from any type of exercise I have encountered in the past.  There is simply no pain involved.  You get to do these crunchless abs that just melt it off really easily.  In the few weeks I have been using the Bender Ball on a regular basis, I have noticed a way trimmer me. And the best part is, I don’t have to spend all that much time doing it.  Just a few minutes each night and I feel relaxed, no pain and I see results.  What could be better?

So take the easy way out.  You’re not cheating.  The Bender Ball is actually good for the entire body since it works with the body, not against it (hence you end up feeling no pain).  Why fight the system (or in the case the body), when you really don’t have to?  If you are not the kind of person who is going to go to the gym on a regular basis, why waste the money getting a membership?  By using the Bender Ball at home you will find you save money, time and energy.  What a great way of getting in shape.

Music makes the world go round.  And I’m finding this to be true for myself with my exercise routine.  Lately, when I have had trouble getting through my exercise routine, I’ve found that music makes a big difference. So, I find some great new tunes for my iPod and I get bopping to the beat.  This is especially true when I’m doing crunchless abs on my Bender Ball.  I’ve actually found some great tunes that I am able to listen to exactly in time with my Bender Ball routine.  This keeps my pace up and allows me to enjoy my routine more.

This also goes for my walking and running routines.  I find that I’m willing to keep going for longer when I have the right music with me.  It sustains me and keeps up my pace.  Music is definitely the key to melt it off for me and to keep up my Bender Ball, walking and other exercise routines!

I’ve stepped up my exercise lately and I have my neighbor to thank for it.  Every year, he creates a memorial event for his mother which includes a 10K run, a bike race and a swimming event.  You can participate in one activity or many, and all of the money that you raise is donated to a charitable organization.  I’ve never participated before, but I’ve been feeling more athletic lately with my daily exercise and my crunchless abs routine with the Bender Ball.  So, I decided to take the leap.

For the first time, I’ve really seen that setting a goal makes a tremendous difference in my exercise routine and my incentive.  On the days when I might normally say, “Oh forget the run!  I’m too tired,”  I find myself out there anyway chugging along.  I want to make it through the 10K run, whether I actually run the whole way or just walk some of it, and it’s made me more motivated with my routine.

Brilliant!  I’m definitely learning a great piece of advice with this fundraiser.  Now, the trick is to figure out what my next goal will be when the fundraiser ends so that I continue with this mindset.
