Stability Ball Push Up

Target area(s): chest

How to perform the stability ball push up:

This first version is easier than the second.

Begin with your knees/lower quads on the ball.  Your hand should be supporting your upper body and be about shoulder-width apart.

Lower your upper body to the floor by bending your elbows.

Push back up to the starting position.  Exhale on the way up.

A more difficult variation is t0 perform the move above, but with your ankles/shins on the stability ball.

Complete 3 sets of 10-15 reps, resting for 60 seconds in between each set.
