Exercise Ball and Light Weights

Buy an exercise ball (I’ve seen them for as little as $10). For the light weights you can use 4lt milk jugs. Inflate the ball and fill the jugs up with as much or little water that you can handle. Don’t over do it at first. Put on a movie or favorite television show and move your body around while sitting on the ball. Meanwhile, take your milk jugs and do arm curls and triceps curls while you watch your favorite show. No muss, No fuss!!
