    Thera-Band has a rating system that tells you which ball and resistance bands to choose.

    I need more details on how to choose a ball. I cannot understand the height table. It starts with 5 ‘ what does it mean? What equals 5’ in centimetres? I am 156 cm tall. What size of ball suits me?

  5. Mel B on October 29, 2021 at 3:58 am

    I’m 5’3” but would a 75 cm ball be better for me my hips are wide. My sister in law said I needed a 75 cm ball what do you think

    Thanks so much for your videos.  I always watch and give a thumbs up, but don’t normally comment. I was wondering how to buy a proper exercise ball and this was very helpful.

  7. WHEALTH CONSCIOUS on October 29, 2021 at 4:01 am

    I really want to know how on earth they are measuring these balls. Surely 55cm for example is not the circumference of what they say 55cm is. So confused.

    "Most famous physical therapists on the internet." …Yeah, well, you know, that’s just, like, your opinion, man.

    Some trainers say that sitting on top, with feet flato on the floor, the hips must be higher than the knees…..

    The world is incomplete without you two

  23. Christopher Biagioni on October 29, 2021 at 4:41 am

    Any chance that you know what brand that specific exercise ball is? I scanned through the video to see if I could spot a logo on it, but nothing. You mentioned that it’s rated for 600lbs in the video, but that’s in contrast to the only exercise ball on your recommended products amazon page; which is rated for 270lb. I’m one of those people you mentioned in the video that like the softer ball, but it’s not at all easy to find them.

  24. braf zachland on October 29, 2021 at 4:42 am

    ppl will use it with way less air than that man, ppl will deflate it so it lays flat on stand on it like a bosu ball before they can or try to stand or even kneel balance on it fully inflated

    Y’all are just wonderful to watch I would love to be around such positive carefree spirits. That is the way I love to be but most of the people I have encountered nowadays just take things way to serious. Stressing about something completely out of ur control is hell on ur body. I tend to start stressing lije the people im around because their stress is apparently contagious. So I have currently isolated myself from society lol I just want to be around people like me that dont stressthe small stuff. Just live life. I want to just live a happy life. I chose a happy life no matter what happens in my life I’m still alive and there is absolutely NOTHING I can not overcome. It is never the end just an obstacle or I like to think its God helping me chose the right path by throwing a road block up. Sorry for rambling I was just watching yall for the 1st time & what drawed my attention most was when he said u handle it im gonna do a sit up. He is so carefree but still in a respectable way. I wish I could meet both of u in person I would to be around some positivity and hope its just as contagious. Keep up the great work and thanks for all the really great information. God Bless! Btw…Definitely a Subscriber & fan as of today 💚💋😀💜
