Ball With Weights - Incline Chest Press
Primary Muscles: Pectoralis Major and Minor
Secondary Muscles: Triceps
  1. Sit on top of ball. Lie back as you walk your feet out until your shoulder blades are on the ball. Tuck your chin to keep your neck in good posture. Make sure your knees are directly over your ankles.
  2. Your arms should be fully extended (elbows soft) with your palms facing away from you and the weight suspended at shoulder width directly above your chest.
  3. Pinch your shoulder blades together with your chest sticking out for the duration of the exercise.
  4. Lower the weight out to the side until your elbows are at a 90 degree angle. Press the weight back up and consciously flex your chest muscles at the top.

Helpful Hints:
By maintaining proper form during this exercise, you prevent shoulder injuries. Do not allow your elbows to dip below the level of your shoulders.
