I’m excited to review an exercise product today: Dyna Disc Balance Cushion !
When it arrived, there were no instructions with it, so I did what anyone would do–Check YouTube! I found all kinds of different ways to use it.
The exercise I’ve done the most this week is one to strengthen the back while sitting on a chair:
Here’s one for beginners. I tried some of these this week.
Here are a couple for advanced users. There is no way I could do these yet!
This next one is great for my boys–tossing a ball while balancing on the disc:
I was grateful that I also received a hand pump. I’ve adjusted the air pressure different ways to see what works the best. And I found a video which told me how to pump it up!
So, here’s my review. I like this balance disc and will keep it and continue using it. I’d like to gain more balance and continue activating more muscles than I usually do. My kids will be using it as well. They love walking by it and testing out their balance. I love that it’s inexpensive (less than $30) and takes up practically no space. I’ve been keeping it on my computer chair! I can see how using a balance disc is similar to T-Tapp’s focus on the T-Tapp stance–you’re activating far more muscles using the stance or by balancing on the cushion. There are some balance exercises on the TappCore DVD which I haven’t tried yet. I did use the balance cushion with 3 other TappCore exercises, though: Butterflies, Chest Press, and Shoulders. It was hard–I’ll have to keep working on it.
There is a YouTube channel from ExerTools so you can see how some other products may be used. Be sure to check out the Exertools website. I can see a lot of great uses for Homeschool P.E. there!

Dude, how did you get exercise stuff to review??? I have NEVER been asked, no matter how many posts about exercise I have had. *pouting* This looks cool!
