Advanced Triceps Exercises with Stability Ball
Triceps are an often forgotten muscle group. Triceps are located on the opposite side of the biceps at the back of the upper arm. Well strengthened and defined triceps make the arm look bigger and sleeker (reducing the "flabby arm" look).
A stability or exercise ball is a ball constructed of soft elastic and filled with air until firm.Most stability balls range from a diameter of approximately 35 to 85 centimeters (14 to 34 inches).
A primary benefit of exercising with an exercise ball as opposed to exercising directly on a hard flat surface is that the body has to respond to the instability of the ball in order to remain balanced. This in turn forces the body to engage far more stabilizing muscles (i.e. core muscles) and those muscles become stronger over time.
The stability ball is most often used during core (abdominal, lower back) strength exercises.
The exercise ball push-up is an advanced exercise that uses the bench to increase the difficulty. The exercise ball is very unstable and this exercise takes a great amount of strength and coordination to be done while maintaining proper form.
