New Exercise of the Month – Dumbbell Chest Press on Swiss Ball

March 27, 2009 by  

The chest press is a fantastic exercise to tone the chest and arm muscles. By using a swiss ball it also challenges the nervous system and utilises the core and bum muscles as well. This is because the ball creates an unstable environment that forces these muscles to work very hard.

As always i have included 3 different variations to cater for all levels of experience and ability. The basic requirement to be able to perform this exercise is the ability to roll down to a ‘ supine bridge’ position (so that your head and shoulders are supported by the ball and your hips are level with your knees and shoulders) and then push back up to a seated position. If you cannot perform this movement then i do not recommend performing the exercise on a swiss ball just yet, instead practice the supine bridge until you feel more comfortable with the movement.
