Kamagon Ball Review and Workout (Great for Postpartum Runners!)

Having babies is the most wonderful thing in the world - however, it left me with little to no core strength afterwards. My back ached and my stomach area felt completely unsupported. I sought our exercises to help rebuild my core strength and transverse abdominals, not for vanity, but for pure functionality. The core is the center of your bodies powerhouse I I knew I had to get them firing again before I could attempt to reengage any sort of regular running routine.

In my research I discovered a new workout functional powerhouse - hydro interita training. Hydro-inertia creates instability while you perform exercises, forcing you to use more muscles to stay balanced - especially engaging your deep core, transverse abdominal muscles. It also mimics real-life situations far more than just standard stationary dumbbells helping you can more strength and functional fitness in less time - the busy mom that I am was sold!

In the workout video below I am using the 9" kamagon ball. It's a soft ball with two side hand grips and can be used in place of any dumbbells or kettlebells. You can fill the kamagon ball with 1-13 pounds of water, with the easy to read indicators on the side of the ball, to vary the weight and resistance of your exercises. I preformed these exercises with 6 pounds of water in my ball.

At home morning strength and cross training workouts are my jam and I think that with a few key pieces of equipment you can get a killer training session in. I always recommend a set of resistance bands and this new kamagon ball has been an ultra effective swap from my dumbbells.
