How do I perform a ball chest press with 2 arms?

To perform a chest press on a stability ball, position your shoulder blades on the ball with your arms straight above. Watch Heather Carty, of Memorial Hospital Jacksonville's H.E.A.R.T Fitness Center, demonstrate a chest press on a stability ball.
Lie on top of a stability ball, with the ball positioned between your shoulder blades. Maintain a bridge position, with your feet hip width apart and your knees in line with your hips. Contract your glutes, keeping your shoulders, hips and knees in line. Hold a dumbbell in each hand at chest level, with your elbows slightly outside your body and flexed. Press both dumbbells up and together, fully extending your arms and hold the top position. Return dumbbells to the starting position and repeat.
