5. Ball Push-Up

Targets shoulders, chest, arms, abs

Lie facedown with your belly over the ball and slowly walk your hands forward until the tops of your thighs are on the ball; keep wrists aligned under your shoulders, fingers pointed slightly in. Lower chest toward the floor, bending elbows out to sides; think of touching your forehead to the floor to keep your neck in line with your spine. Straighten arms and repeat. Work up to 3 sets of 8 to 10 reps.

Challenge yourself: Do the move with your shins on the ball. For an extra challenge, raise one leg.

@ tweetylc13 - i think you are meant to rest your non moving legs ankle on top of your moving legs knee(lower thigh), that way you are balancing with one leg and it makes you have to engage your core more. Hope that made sense.

How can you do it with just one leg for the challenge? Where do you place non-moving leg?
