How to Do Dumbbell Stability Ball Chest Press Using Single Arm, Feet Together, and Rotation

Each exercise should begin with a good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.

If any pain is experienced, immediately stop this exercise.

Beginning

Beginning Ball Chest Press

1. Lay back on a stability ball so that it rests on your shoulders and neck.

2. Engage your abs to help keep your body straight. Bend at the knees with both of your legs so that the soles of your feet rest flat on the ground. The legs and feet should be touching each other.

3. You will be performing a dumbbell press and rotation with one of your arms.

Movement

Ball Chest Press Movement

1. Start off while holding the dumbbell straight up in front of you so that your knuckles face the ceiling and your palm face away.

2. Slowly bring the dumbbell down and bend at the elbow so that it makes a 90 degree angle.

3. At the bottom of the press, the back of the arms should be in a straight line, parallel to the ground, with your palms both still facing away.

4. Press back up from this position while simultaneously reaching your arm to the opposing side of your body, dumbbell in hand.

5. Reach back to where your arm was and come down from the press.

6. Repeat for repetitions and then change arms with the dumbbells.

Benefits

Ball Chest Press Benefits

The stability ball chest press works the shoulders, triceps, and chest muscles while also requiring you to engage your core. This exercise targets your chest more than the floor press because it allows your triceps and chest to move over a wider range of motion.
