  • Position your feet and shins firmly on top of an exercise ball.
  • With your arms straight, fully extend outwards until you are in the push up position.
  • Do not bend your knees, hunch or arch your back.  Press your toes into the ball, contract your lower abs, and lift your bum into the air. You should form an upside down “V” at the top.
  • Slowly lower back down into the push up position.
  • Repeat for 12-20 reps.
