Wakeboard Workout Wednesday #3 – Stability Ball Dumbbell Bench Press

This week’s Wakeboard Workout is Stability Ball Dumbbell Bench Press.  This is great strength training exercise for wakeboarding.  The Stability Ball Dumbbell Bench Press will work your chest, shoulders, triceps, core, and balance all at the same time.

WARNING: Use the information in this video at your own risk. Please consult your physician before participating in an exercise program. Wake 2 Wake Fitness does not take responsibility for any type of injuries that occur from following the listed videos.

Rest your head, neck, and shoulders on the stability ball.  Extend your hips up so your knees are at a 90 degree angle and the rest of your body is parallel to the floor.  Fully extend your elbows pressing straight over your chest, keeping your hands in-line with your nipples, bringing the dumbbells together at the top of the movement.  Bring the dumbbells back toward your shoulders, when your elbows are slightly below 90 degrees, repeat the movement.

Start with a lighter weight than you would normally use on a DB press since you must adapt to controlling the ball during the movement.  Perform 3-4 sets of 6-10 reps.

After trying out the exercise, leave a comment and let me know what differences you feel between this exercise and a regular DB Bench Press.
