Ball With Weights - Triceps Press
Primary Muscles: Triceps Brachii
Secondary Muscles: Rotator Cuff, Latissimus Dorsi, Pectoralis Major and Minor all as shoulder stabilizers.
  1. Sit on top of ball. Lie back as you walk your feet out until your head and shoulders are resting comfortably on the top of the ball. Squeeze your glutes and hold your hips up towards the ceiling without arching the back. Make sure your knees are directly over your ankles.
  2. Extend your arms straight up towards the ceiling. Keep your elbows soft.
  3. Bend your elbows to 90 degrees and bring the dumbbell down towards your forehead. Your elbows should stay in a fixed position directly above your shoulder.
  4. Press the dumbbell back up into your starting position.

Helpful Hints:
Do not allow your elbows to rotate out to the side as you do this exercise. Your elbows should stay close to the body. Also, if you feel any pain in your elbows the weight is too heavy. Decrease the weight and try again.
