Stability Ball Push-Ups
- Place your tummy on the stability ball and palms on the floor in front of the ball. Walk your hands forward as you slide your torso forward on the ball, until you come into a push-up position with your thighs, shins, or balls of your feet on the ball. (Note: placing your thighs on the ball is the least challenging option, your shins slightly more challenging, and the balls of your feet or your toes the most challenging.) Place your palms on the floor under your chest. Make sure your abs are tight and back is flat. Do not allow your hips to sink downward.
- Bend your elbows out to the sides as you bring your face and chest toward the floor. Exhale as you extend your elbows and push up to the starting position. Repeat 10 to 15 times.
