An excellent exercise for the triceps and shoulders.
- Roll the stability ball onto an exercise mat. You can do this exercise without the mat, but the mat will help prevent slipping. Sit with your buttocks on the ball and place your hands under your buttocks with your fingers pointing forward. Press firmly into the ball with your hands and lift your buttocks off of the ball.
- Exhale and press firmly into the ball with your hands and lift your buttocks off of the ball. Inhale and bend your elbows until they are at approximately 90 degrees. Exhale and push yourself back up until your elbows are almost straight.
Repeat 8-12 times, rest, then repeat the entire exercise as desired.
