Posted in Core/Fitness,How-To,Stability Ball / Yoga Ball,Toning Balls by Harmony on December 18, 2009

Following are just two chest strength training exercises that you can do with Soft-Weighted Toning Balls.  For an added challenge you can do this on a Stability Ball (as shown).

Chest Press and Chest Fly with Toning Balls

Chest Press and Chest Fly with Toning Balls

Chest Press on Burst-Resistant Exercise Ball:

Start in the seated position on the Stability Ball while holding one soft-weighted ball in each hand.  Walk feet out until the stability ball is positioned at the shoulder blades and supporting your head.  Press the soft-weighted balls straight up over your chest by straightening arms.  Slowly lower arms back to shoulder position.  Repeat.

Chest Fly on Burst-Resistant Exercise Ball:

Start in the seated position on the Stability Ball while holding one soft-weighted ball in each hand.  Walk feet out until the exercise ball is positioned at the shoulder blades and supporting your head.  Raise soft-weighted balls above your head with arms straight.  Keep arms slightly bent and slowly lower the toning balls to your side until arms are parallel to the floor.  Raise soft-weighted balls back to top.  Repeat.

These exercises are showing a model using Natural Fitness Products that we carry.  Natural Fitness makes environmentally friendly yoga and fitness products, such as hemp yoga straps or phthalate-free vinyl fitness/Pilates products.
