Dumbbell Triceps Extensions on Ball Exercise

Starting Position

Start from a seated position on the Swiss ball. Slowly walk out until your head and shoulders are supported by the ball. Your feet should be slightly further than hip width apart. Hold dumbbells and extend arms above your head, palms facing inward and elbows in.

Action

Lower dumbbells to 90 degrees at the elbow, so that the dumbbells are at both sides of your head. Return to the starting position. Try doing 2 sets with 10-12 repetitions.

Special Instructions

It’s important to keep your elbows in as you lower the dumbbells for optimal isolation of your triceps.
