Beach Ball Series # 2

Push Up

Target muscles: arms and abs

Step 1: Place your feet/ shins (more challenging) or thighs(to make it easier) on the ball and your hands slightly wider than shoulder width apart.  Keep your abdominals drawing inward and the shoulders drawing gently down away from the ears.

Step 2: Bend the elbows and lower your chest downward toward the sand, use and exhale to press yourself back to the start position.

 

Repeat 10- 20 reps or…..add a little friendly competition to a day with friends or family at the beach. Whoever does the most push-ups wins!
