Pushups on medicine ball, pushups on stability ball, close-grip pushups, power pushups, regular pushups, incline pushups, decline pushups, uneven pushups….do them all! Pushups are one of the all-time best bodyweight exercises. You will burn arm fat (tone flabby triceps), chest-area fat and improve core strength.
The pushup on medicine ball is a tough exercise that not everyone can do! If you need to start with a regular pushup, that’s definitely okay. Include pushups in your workouts 3 times a week and progress to tougher versions each week.
How to do pushups on medicine ball:
Put both hands on the ball at arms length. Keep your body straight and torso braced (as if taking a punch in the gut) throughout the movement. Keep your head in line with your torso at all times. Lower your body down to the ball and back to starting position. Repeat for 8-10 repetitions.
This type of pushup requires adequate core strength to do it properly. The pushup on medicine ball will build your upper body stabilizer muscles (chest, arms, shoulders, core, etc.) needed to increase your bench press or other upper body strength exercises.
Include as many bodyweight exercises in your workouts as you can.
