How do I perform a ball triceps extension with alternating arms?

Lie on your back on top of a stability ball, with the ball placed between your shoulder blades.  Position your feet shoulder width apart and pointed straight ahead.  Contract your glutes and lift your hips toward the ceiling until your shoulders, hips and knees are in line.  Hold a dumbbell in each hand with your elbows pointed toward the ceiling.  Extend one elbow until your arm is straight in the air.  Reverse the movement as you return to the starting position.  Repeat the exercise with the opposite arm.
