Pushups on Ball

Starting Position
Start behind the ball, place your midsection on the ball and roll forward until your hands reach the floor. Walk out with your hands until the ball is underneath your knees. Have your hands just outside of shoulder width.

Action
Keep your core strong by not dropping your hips. Your body should be as straight as possible. Lower your upper body to 90 degree at the elbow and return to the starting position. Try doing 2 sets of 10-12 repetitions.

Special Instructions
For a more advanced version, walk out on the ball until the ball is underneath your ankles.
