Targets: Shoulders, chest, arms, and abs
Holding a dumbbell in each hand, lie faceup on stability ball with upper back resting on ball, knees bent 90 degrees, and feet flat, so torso is parallel to floor.
- To get into start position, extend arms out to sides at shoulder level, elbows slightly bent, with palms facing up. (MAKE IT EASIER: Lie back with head and torso on a bench to perform move.)
- Raise arms toward ceiling, rotating wrists as you lift so ends of dumbbells meet in center directly above chest with palms facing forward. Lower arm to start position.
- Do 12 reps.
Tip: Think of hugging a beach ball throughout the movement -- your arms should remain slightly rounded.
