STA­BILISE YOUR SHOUL­DERS

Men's Fitness - - Trainer -

Gym balls aren’t great at di­rectly build­ing strength be­cause the in­sta­bil­ity means that you can’t lift as much weight as on a more solid sur­face. They do, how­ever, chal­lenge your smaller sta­bil­is­ing mus­cles, so if you can work on one you’ll gain the struc­tural in­tegrity that will al­low you to train with heavy weights con­sis­tently and stay in­jury-free – which is cru­cial if you’re go­ing to get big­ger and stronger.

KEY MOVE GYM BALL PRESS-UP

Start with your hands on the ball shoul­der-width apart and your body in a straight line from head to heels. Keep­ing your body straight, bend your el­bows to lower your torso to the ball, then press back up to the start.
