Fitness Ball Single Dumbbell Forward Raise Technique Instructions

Fitness Ball Single Dumbbell Forward Raise
Technique - Start by bending your knees keeping your back straight when picking up the dumbbell starting with your weaker arm first. When ready sit down on the fitness ball with your knees together and your feet forwards. Keeping your body upright gripping the dumbbell so that your palm is facing behind you start once you have found your balance. Place your free hand onto your thigh for extra stability. Exhale as you raise the dumbbell until your arm is horizontal. Hold this position for a count of 1. Inhale as you lower the dumbbell back to the starting position in a slow, controlled manner not allowing your shoulder muscle to hit a resting point before performing the next rep as this will maintain pressure on the deltoid muscle and increase the overall benefits of the exercise. Repeat this technique with the other arm.
