This exercise targets: triceps, legs, glutes, lower back, stability For this exercise, you will need: two dumbbells and an exercise ball
Lay on the exercise ball with your shoulders and neck. Your feet are shoulder-width apart and your knees forming a 90 degree angle. Make sure your body forms a straight line from knees to head and you are in a stable position. Your arms are stretched out above your head, holding two dumbbells about shoulder-width apart.
Slowly lower one dumbbell across your face toward your opposite shoulder. Return to the starting position and repeat the same motion with your other arm.
Tips: Keep your upper arms and elbows close to your head and don't move them. Exhale as you push the weight up and inhale when you lower it. Maintain a stable position by including leg, back and core muscles into the workout. Easier version: you can perform this exercise while lying on a bench. If you are using heavy weights, perform a lower number of repetitions and perform this exercise on a bench. Use weights suitable for your physical strength. Focus on proper technique, and not the amount of weight you are lifting.
Beginners: 10 repetitions with each arm Intermediate level: 15 repetitions with each arm Advanced level: 20 repetitions with each arm
