Chest Fly
Lie back on the stability ball so it supports your torso from your neck to your midback, with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Hold the dumbbells over your chest with your arms extended and your palms facing each other. Keep your elbows slightly bent.


Slowly open your arms to the sides, lowering the weights until your upper arms are parallel to the floor. Pause, then slowly return to the starting position. Keep your shoulders down and back throughout the move.
