How to Do Incline Dumbbell Press on Ball

The incline dumbbell press on the ball 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 the incline dumbbell press on the ball.

Movement

1. Start off by laying at an incline on a stability ball. You will be holding yourself up using your upper back and shoulders on the stability ball while bending your legs forward so that your feet are flat on the floor. Both of your legs and feet should be a couple of inches apart.

2. Start off while holding the dumbbells straight up in front of you so that your knuckles face the ceiling and your palms face away.

3. Slowly bring the dumbbells down and bend at the elbows so that they eventually make 90 degree angles.

4. 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.

5. Press back up from this position to the starting point, and repeat for repetitions.

Benefits

Incline Dumbbell Press on Ball Benefits

The incline press is used to concentrate extra work on the upper pecs. The primary benefit of incline presses is that they strengthen the upper region of the pectoral muscles. Because it's similar to a shoulder press, you activate your shoulders more when the bench is positioned at an inclination of 15 to 30 degrees.
