Begin this exercise by placing your body balanced on the Swiss ball at your core with legs straight and toes on the floor. Hold dumbbells to the left and right side of the Swiss ball underneath your shoulders with arms extended.
EXHALE: Raise your arms to your side, bringing the dumbbells up to shoulder level height. Keep your arms as straight as possible but do not lock your elbows.
INHALE: Slowly lower the dumbbells back to the starting position to complete one rep.
This is not an exercise for heavy weights. Keeping arms slightly bent will less the stress on the elbow.
Muscles Worked: Upper back
