Get Arms Like Kelly Ripa with These Exercises

Here is an exercise that you can do on the stability ball. In fact, it’s sitting. Now it might look easy, and in time it will be, but we want to show you how to make this movement work hard for you and your body.

Make sure your feet are facing forward, shoulder width apart, and you have your back straight up. Shoulders pressed back and chest out. You’re engaging your core muscles, your abdominals, quadriceps, hamstrings, gluts, and just about everything from top to bottom just by sitting stable on this ball.

Now once you do feel comfortable and balanced on the ball, you can add some weights and make a different movement. We used 8-pound dumbbells, but you can grab a weight that feels comfortable for you. Getting started is important to make sure that you’re not over doing it.
