1. Hold the dumbbells in your hands, and stand with the stability ball behind you. Bring one leg back and place the front of the foot on the center of the stability ball's dome, and slightly bend the front knee to help with balance.

2. Lift the spine and make sure that your head is in line with your shoulders, hips, and knees. Keep your supporting knee slightly bent, and look ahead. This will help you balance. Keep your lower body slightly tensed to help steady you.

3. Your arms should be fully extended at your sides with your palms facing your thighs. Once you feel comfortable in the position, tighten your abdominals and pull your shoulders away from your ears.

4. Bend your elbows and start curling the dumbbells, alternating arms, until they reach shoulder height. Simultaneously, you should be rotating your forearms so that at the top of the curl, your palms are facing your shoulders. Make sure that your upper arms remain tight and next to the torso throughout the exercise. Your elbows should not move forward or back, and should not flare out. Only your forearms should be moving.

5. Lower the dumbbells with control by straightening the elbows and return to your original position.

6. Continue to repeat the exercise until you've completed all repetitions.
