Decline Pushup on Exercise Ball


1. Lie face down with chest on exercise ball.

2. Take your hands and walk forward allowing the ball to roll under your body until the top of your feet are supported by the ball.

3. Start position: Place your hands slightly wider than shoulder width, fingers pointing straight ahead, and aligned at the nipple line. Remove one foot and suspend it 4-6 inches above the ball.

4. Lower your body (legs, hips, trunk, and head) 4-8 inches from the floor.

5. Return to the start position by extending at the elbows and pushing the body up.

6. Remember to keep the head and trunk stabilized in a neutral position by isometrically contracting the abdominal and back muscles.

7. Never fully lock out the elbows at the start position and avoid hyperextension of the low back.
