Now there are two variations to a ball push up.  First for the beginners is place the ball against a wall.  Hands slightly wider than shoulder width apart and feet back shoulder width apart.  This is a lot easier if you can handle to much of  your own body weight.  The second version is placing the ball on the floor and again fee shoulder width apart and hands slightly wider than should width on the ball.  Each movement should be a slow controlled movement.
Begin in a push-up position with your feet together and your toes on the floor.  Place your hands on top of a stability ball, slightly wider than shoulder-width apart.  Maintain a straight line between your feet, hips and shoulders.  Draw-in your navel and contract your glutes.  With your back flat, slowly lower your body toward the ball, lowering and contracting your shoulder blades.  Push back up to the starting position being careful not to jut your head forward.
