A key principle of The Gravity Ball Method that we like to demonstrate for new Gravity Ball users is the concept of Time Under Tension. The principle is essentially that whenever you are using the Gravity Ball to exercise for a period of time (For instance, 30, 20, 15 or even 10 minutes), we suggest that you not put the Gravity Ball on the ground (even to rest) until your time is up.
