Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Abs weight ball I really like this ball because it strengthens your core muscles in your stomach. It helps flatten the upper and lower stomach muscles. June 19, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by I love the actual product But I wasn't thrilled with the DVD that came with it. It wasn't very fast paced, there was a lot of talking and I like to get right to my workouts. For me, the DVD ended up being a teaching tool, I use the exercises I learned in my workouts but no longer play the DVD while working out. I love it though, I think it's effective and it's put a little more push into my ab workouts February 10, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Strong Rubber Smell I received the 8lb abs ball as a Christmas present from my husband. I really like the grips, the weight, and how versatile it is. I work sitting down at my desk for 35 hours a week. Add to that a little extra time for leisurely browsing, reading emails, social networking etc, I probably come to about 40hours of sitting down time. This has been a great detriment to my waistline. I try to be mindful of the snacks and food I eat, but having to concentrate while I work, makes me hungry for sugar often. As you may know, the brain runs on pure glucose alone and can use up to 20% of your daily calories if you have to think hard. But of course, the sitting down really hurts my overall fitness. I work out 4-7 days a week lifting weights, cardio on an elliptical trainer, cardio dancing, and Ju-Jitsu. All of this in combination with a sensible diet has helped get some of the flab under control, but I really needed to do more. So, I've been using a Gaiam ball to sit on for a more active sitting experience and to discourage slouching. Now, I have added playing with my 8lb ball whenever I can. At times, I have to sit still and keep my hands on the keyboard, but I do get periods of a minute or so where I have to read a longer piece. It's in those times that I can take my hands off the keys and use the ball in a variety of ways. I lean back so that I can still see the screen and lean sideways with the ball as extra weight. Or, I use it for shoulder presses one side at a time. Because of the grips, I reach it around my own body in a circle from hand to hand. Great for hands, arms, and core. Right now that I am typing, I am squeezing the ball between my thighs, which I can feel on the inside of my thighs and in my abs too. I only give it four stars because it does have a heavy rubber smell. Not in a toxic way, but it's something to be aware of. July 23, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by It's great - be nice if there were other sizes The ball is great. If you look at it and know immediately that it will work for you, like I did, you'll likely be right. They should supply different sizes. These things come in different weights (each a different size), and recently I found the identical item (with different logo) in a sports store in a mall, but at 6 pounds (and a bit smaller). When lying on your back resting, there's a big difference between 6 pounds and 8 pounds, and there are times I will not pick up the 8 pound one, but I will pick up the 6 pound one. July 5, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Helpful I love this medicine ball. The handles make it very easy to use on a decline bench or while working out your obliques. The dvd has a very good whole workout to do with the ball. Great addition to your home gym. May 19, 2009

Answer: 
The weight doesn't come from the air inside the ball so as long as the ball looks fully inflated it's fine. We do not have a PSI rating for this item.

Is this ball exactly the same? I read and they are both 8 pounds. Is it the exact same ball or different rubber/material? http://www.gaiam.com/product/target+your+abs+kit.do

Answer: 
The smell should dissipate over time. You can wash the ball with dish soap to help speed up the process.

Answer: 
The shipping weight is a little over 10 lbs (due to the box size). The ball weighs 8 pounds out of the package.
