Push-Up And Dips On The Exercise Ball

push up and dips on the exercise ball

You have already learned how to do push-ups on the ball in the basics section. To do a dip on the ball, start by sitting on the exercise ball with your hands near your hips, palms down and fingers facing forward. Slowly lift yourself up off the ball and lower your butt down towards the ground in front of it. Your knees should remain bent with your feet on the floor. Now using your arms (don't cheat with your legs), raise yourself back up onto the ball in the seated starting position.

To make this exercise challenging, do a cut-down alternating push ups and dips on the ball.
