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.

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
