Bender Ballin’ to Some Killer Abdominals

June 9, 2011 · 34 comments

About 42834729 people have questioned/commented on my obsession with working my core.

I can’t help it. I love feelin’ the burn in my abs.

And I have a confession – I only report about half of my ab workouts on my exercise tab. Seeecret ab workouts going on around here.

I have a love affair with my Bender Ball.

Check out this video, try the ball, and you’ll understand. Promise.

There is a huge lack of awkwardness in this video. No sir, no awkward here at all.

Now go get a Bender Ball. Its results are equivalent to doing a bajillion crunches for hours a night. Trust me, I used to try to do that. The Bender is better.

Once you go Bender, you never go back.

Dear Leslie Bender, you may now send me a grand percentage of your proceeds from here on out. You’re so very welcome for this unsolicited glowing review.

πŸ˜€ Enjoy that.

I’m at work right now so I can’t watch your amazing vlog until I’m at home. But I saw on Twitter that you had update your blog look and so I wanted to check it out. I just couldn’t wait until I got home tonight πŸ˜‰ But anyways. I don’t know if it’s just me but the writing in the light pink color in your header is really hard to read. I don’t know what those awesome (I’m sure!) words say up there πŸ™

So it really works, huh? I’ve always secretly wanted to try it, like most things on infomercials. I’m guessing it probably has to be comibined with all that eat healthy, small portions and do lots of cardio and other lifting nonsense too, huh?

Well, I’d give a whole lot for my body to look like yours so if you wanna share those secrets by all means!

PS Jroll hit a 3 run bomb as I read this, weird timing!

I’m always in the market for a fresh, new ab workout! I’ll have to try these bender balls!



13 keepnthefaith June 10, 2011 at 6:50 pm

Haha I’ve always seen it around and have been tempted a few times to pick it up but never have!! I totally hit the floor almost every night for ab work during my tv shows. It cracks my hubby up!! πŸ™‚


14 Ellie@fitforthesoul June 10, 2011 at 8:50 pm

this bender ball looks fun! If I use any kind of ball for this stuff, I usually do pushups with my feet on a med. ball, or other exercises on the swiss ball. This is a great video Alyssa~It’s so interesting to see the person behind the words here. πŸ˜€


15 Rach @ This Italian Family June 11, 2011 at 3:22 am
