Target Muscles: Chest (Pectorals), Triceps & Core.
With a set of dumbbells in your hands, sit on your stability ball and then lean back rolling the ball until the ball is underneath your head, shoulders and neck and you are laying horizontally with your hips in line, as shown.
Then, whilst maintaining your balance, raise your dumbbells as you would for a normal chest press for the required number of repetitions.
This is a fun exercise that gives variation to the usual bench press, and its added benefit is that it activates the core becoming more challenging. It is much better to use moderate weights and higher reps, and please be careful as you exit the position and come off the ball.
Note: This is an advanced exercise, and should not be used with heavy weights because the ball is an unstable surface.
