Pushups with the Exercise Ball & Exercise Band

Description:

This is a good exercise if you are not yet comfortable with pushups on the floor.

Instructions:

1

Starting position is a push-up on the stability ball: your thighs are on the ball, hands are placed shoulder width apart in front of the ball. Your body forms a parallel line with the floor. The exercise band wrapped around the shoulders and held in place with both hands on the floor.

2

Do a controlled pushup movement with your whole body staying rigid (i.e. when your upper body goes down, your legs should go up at the same time). Repeat the push-up 10 to 12 times. Roll back to relax over the ball, then repeat the exercise sequence.
