EXERCISE: Core Ball Push Up

This in not only a great upper body exercise, but when performed correctly, is a great core exercise. The core ball is similar to a medicine ball (weighted ball), except it has handles on either side of the ball for functional uses. This exercise involves, the chest, back, triceps, shoulders, and core muscles with stability. To perform this exercise correctly:

1. Holding on to the handles of the core ball, making sure the core ball is right underneath the chest muscles, and not your head
2. Body straight during movement
3. Lower the body to where elbows are in 90 degree angle, inhaling on the way down, exhaling on the way up
4. Make sure to keep the core muscles, glutes, legs as tight as possible, return to starting position
5. Make sure you don’t lock out the elbows
