Begin by lying with your head and shoulders on a ball. Make sure that your feet are pointed straight and are shoulder-width apart. Lift your hips up toward the ceiling until your shoulders, hips and knees are in line with one another. Next, hold a dumbbell in each hand and begin by bending your elbows until they are pointed up toward the ceiling and your weights are by your ears. Extend your elbows until your arms are straight in air and squeeze the back of your arms (triceps). Hold, and then lower the weights by reversing the movement to the start position, and repeat for the desired number of repetitions.
