Posted by Nick Folker on Oct 12, 2015 6:49:39 PM

Find me on:

This week's Building blocks features a plate-themed workout - 5 exercises using a variety of plates to perform the workout. Today we will start out by examining the Stability Ball Raise + Plate Shoulder Extension.

SB Raise + Plate Progression Tips:

Holding a light plate in each hand lie on your stomach on the stability ball with your neck relaxed - Position 1. Your knees should be slightly off the ground. Raise your chest up with your arms forming a 90 angle at the elbow and wrists inline - Position 2. Pause. Press both arms overhead in line with your ears - Position 3. Pause. Return slowly to position 2.  Pause. Return to position 1. Pause. Reset and repeat for prescrined reps. Keep the movement slow and controlled.
