Dumbbell Chest Press on Ball

Starting Position
Start from a seated position on the Swiss ball. Slowly walk out until your head and shoulders are supported by the ball (not pictured). Your feet should be slightly further than hip width apart. Start with the dumbbells at a 90 degree angle at your elbow, palms facing away from your body.

EXHALE: Extend both arms up and in slowly above your chest, until the dumbbells touch each other.

INHALE: Slowly lower back to the starting position.

Special Instructions
Make sure to keep your core tight, keeping your hips from sagging.
