Exercise Name: Ball Lateral Raise

Body Part(s) Worked: Abdominals / Shoulders / Core / Balance / Coordination

Start: Begin with your abdominals drawn in, dumbbells in your hands, and feet close together.

Finish: Raise your arms to your sides with your arms slightly bent until your elbows are even with your shoulders.

Do not allow your elbows to go above the shoulders, and keep your hands slightly in front of your shoulders.

Variations:

Ball Front Raise:

This exercise begins in the same position as the lateral raise, but instead of lifting the dumbbells to your side, lift

them one at a time to the front of your body while rotating the dumbbell inward 90 degrees so the dumbbells finish

parallel to the ground.


Ball 45 Degree Lateral Raise

Start: Begin in a seated position, bent at the hips at a 45 degree angle with your back straight, and

head in a neutral position.


Finish: Raise the dumbbells to your side, contracting the rear deltoids and upper back. Keep your abs

tightened the entire duration of the exercise, and do your best to keep the 45 degree hip angle.
