Preparation: Place your body into the pushup position and your shins against the ball, palms on the floor directly under your chest.

Execution: Lower your chest to the floor by bending your elbows. Once your chin is even with the bend in your elbows, exhale and press back to start. Remember to keep your back flat, your hips up and your abs tight!
