Exercise ball workout for chest and triceps

If you’re looking to build strength in the upper body, here’s a simple exercise ball workout for you to try.

  • Complete all sets of an exercise in a row, with a 45-second rest in between each set, before moving on to the next exercise.
  • Choose weights that allow you to finish each set while maintaining good form.

1. Exercise ball push-up

  • Aim for 3 sets of 10 repetitions (3×10)
  • For an easier version of this move, try a BOSU ball (round side down) or push-ups on mat.

2. Exercise ball barbell skull crusher

  • Aim for 3 sets of 15 repetitions (3×15)

3. Exercise ball dumbbell chest press

  • Aim for 3 sets of 15 repetitions (3×15)

4. Exercise ball alternating dumbbell fly

  • Aim for 3 sets of 15 repetitions per arm (3×15)
  • Remember to do each arm: 1 rep with one arm, then 1 rep with the other arm. Repeat until you’ve done 15 reps per arm.
