Editorial Reviews

New York Times best-selling author Joyce Vedral presents this totally new DVD workout On the Ball that allows new angles, new exercises and dreamy comfort with your exercise ball. At the same time it gets your entire body in shape in a very short block of workout time. How? You do your entire workout for a given day without stopping by doing your first light weight for every exercise, then your middle weight and then your heaviest weight. It takes minutes because of all the wasted rest time being saved, and the best part: because you never rest, you burn that much more fat. You do upper body on day one: Back, Shoulders, Biceps, Chest and Triceps. On Lower body day you can do Abs, Butt and Thighs. Requires three sets of dumbbells ranging from light to heavy and an exercise ball.

By Joanna Daneman #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on October 26, 2009
I like working out with weights; being a slow-strong type of person rather than a fast sprinter, weights are a natural for me. So combining them with either aerobics as in Joyce's Speedy Non-Stop Fat Meltdown workout or on a physio ball, where more small muscles are called into action, is something I naturally enjoy doing. Balancing on a ball makes you unconsciously use balancing muscles, those smaller muscles in the limbs and torso that allow you to sit, stand, stay upright or in any position. Putting yourself on a slightly wobbly surface like a ball makes you constantly adjust, which increases your workout activity.

The workout starts with a short set of stretches. If you are the tightly-wound type, you will need more stretching, in my opinion, than this. I am usually pretty limber so this set is enough for me but it is not a whole lot of stretching. So run it twice if you know you need time to warm up.

Then you progress to an upper body workout. The workouts require three sets of dumbbells, which you will be adding to as you get stronger, the ball and that's about it.

You do two 16 minute workouts, on split days. The upper body workout begins with Preacher curls are a natural for the ball--you lean over the ball and using it as a bench, pull up your biceps while resting the upper arms on the ball. Then hammer curls and on to bent laterals lying on the ball, rows. You lean on the ball, lie on the ball or use it to lift. the leg exercises use the ball for inner thigh (hold the ball, flex) and for other leg exercises.

Joanna did a very thorough review of this DVD, so I'm going to just add some of my own points to it.

This is my favorite of Joyce Vedral's strength DVDs. Like Joyce Vedral: Quick Quartet- No Stopping Quick Shape-Up Workout and Joyce Vedral: Speedy Non-Stop Fat Meltdown Plus Stomach Zapping Abs, this is a pyramid-style workout with no rests. All the Upper Body and Lower Body exercises are done together as one giant superset. You do the entire set before shifting from light weights to medium, and medium to heavy. Because of this, I was able to get away with one set of adjustable barbells (and a remote control to pause between sets for 30 seconds while I changed weights) for my first few workouts with this DVD.

Joyce claims that it is 100 percent aerobic. While I am dubious about that claim, I have found this to be a solid and enjoyable workout that tones my entire body, and seems to burn quite a few calories while doing it.

What I love about this workout is that it is fast-paced and has some very fun workout moves to use with a stability ball. This DVD also helped me adapt other weight-training exercises to the ball, which I found very helpful as I do not own a bench. It does share the weakness of all Joyce Vedral strength workouts that it does not include an adequate warm-up or cool-down, but I found that I could easily provide those myself.

The upper body workout has some fairly standard strength training exercises and primarily uses the ball as a workout bench.

This went by really quickly. I like how she uses the ball and it works muscles in a unique way. Joyce is the real deal. She seems to truly care for those who do her dvds. She still even checks her own email if you contact her through her site. I have used a variety of her dvds over the years and she is no fluff, excellent workout. The ones with Martha, I really like as she helps count in those.

I love this workout! It's a nice change from the routine, and a great way to use the ball for a wide variety of exercises. I wouldn't want it to be the ONLY workout in my collection because it's not comprehensive, but it's a great addition. You get a very intense workout in a short period of time, one of Joyce's strengths.
