Warm Up Exercises and Stretching Your Legs
Once you get the ok, it's time to start planning your exercise workouts.
Although everyone wants to get their workouts done as quickly as possible please don't forget to spend about 10 minutes warming up and stretching out before you exercise and 10 cooling down when your finished exercising.
Warming up your muscles will help you avoid muscle and joint injury. You can't exercise if your injured so please warm up first.
Warming up can be as simple as walking around the block.
As you walk start from a slow pace and steadily speed up your pace. You can also increase the size of your steps which will help to stretch out your leg muscles in addition to getting a warm up. As you get towards the last 2 minutes of your warm up slow to slow the pace down.
This will prepare your body for the stretches.
Stretches can be lunges, going up and down your stairs (take them 2 at a time going up but only one at a time going down), squats, or stretching out as the photo above shows.

They do take a bit of getting use to but you will find that you are having fun while you are getting the hang of it.
With exercise balls just be sure to get the strongest and most durable ones ( I usually look for 4 star ratings from previous customers) and also inspect your ball before you use it.
Remember that you will be putting your full weight on the ball and you don't want to use one that may be cracked or frayed as they will become less durable over time depending on how often you use them and the climate where you live.
If you live in a drier climate expect you ball to have a shorter life than if you live in a more humid climate.
