Are these good? Do you just bounce up and down on them? How are they good for you, toning etc? A worthwhile investment?

    Waste of time and money, IMO.

    It's just not controlled enough. Too unstable to be used meaningfully.

    You'd be much better off doing squats/lunges variations for your lower body etc etc etc.

    What about those bouncy ball things?

    They can be great for core work, and also using them with weights for a decent resistance workout, with the advantage of extra core hammerage.

    Just a bitch to store as they're fairly large. Search 'Swiss ball' for prices.

    lol :confused: I know sit ups and squats. I'm not fussed about crazy moves, I just want to get myself fit and a bit more healthy!

    I'll PM you some more info soon, remind me to. :) I'm utterly fed up at the office tonight (already did a 21 hour shift this week) so am leaving to go for a few drinks.

    They're not crazy moves though - just variations of very standard moves.
