Begin by placing your belly on a stability ball, keeping your legs straight and glutes squeezed. Draw in your abs and hold a dumbbell in each hand. Next, extend your arms out in front of your body. Raise both arms up at a 45 degree angle, making sure that you keep your thumbs pointed up toward the ceiling until you reach eye level. Be sure not to shrug your shoulders or arch your back. Hold at the top and then return to the starting position. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.
