Which Exercise Ball Size is Best for You?

Exercise Balls come in a range of sizes depending on your height, leg length and whether you wish to use it primarily for exercising or as a posture seat. The right size exercise ball is vital to avoid causing pain or injury. 

For example, when sitting on your exercise ball it is important that your hips are above your knees to allow the normal lower back curve to exist.
