Stability Ball Pushup

Try the stability ball pushup as an advancement from regular pushups. The stability ball pushup requires you to balance your body and improves core strength.

The stability ball pushup requires more muscles to be activated, such as stabilizers and core muscles. So, the stability ball push up works more muscles than the bench press exercise.

Do the stability ball pushup this way:

1. Lay your chest on the stability ball.

2. Put your hands at the sides of the ball. With your toes on the ground, keep your legs straight.

3. Push your body up until your arms are almost straight (don't lock your elbows). Keep your body in a straight line and your torso braced (as if taking a punch to the gut).

4. Hold and balance for two seconds.

5. Slowly return to the starting position and repeat.
