Weekly Wednesday Workout: Dumbbell Pullovers

Today we work the chest and back!

 I love this move because it works almost every upper body muscle. What I like about this video is the fact that the instructor shows us three different ways to do the move. You don’t have to be in the gym to execute this move in the gym, you can do this one at home at the edge of the bed or even laying down. I have done this move on the gym bench (when there is one available!) or on the exercise ball. The ball is definitely more difficult and you get more bang for your buck because you use the core muscles even more for stabilization.

Have you ever tried dumbbell pullovers?

I have done this move before. It freaks me out a little because I am always worried that my ball will pop out from under me and I will drop the weights on my head! It is a great move!

I know what you mean!! The good thing is that you don’t have to do it exclusively on the ball 🙂

I have never done this! Scarlet was riding a bike with a stability ball on her lap this morning. I thought that was something!
And it was cool that they have stability balls at school!

That IS something!! I think stability balls are pretty much everywhere 🙂

Ooohhh…I definitely need to try this. I love using the exercise ball in place of a bench for exercises. It’s a great way to get a little extra out of your workout – especially if you’re cramped for time!

Exactly, I love a move that works multiple body parts!

Haven’t tried at all. But it’s great that working out doesn’t always have to be in the gym. My workmates always ask me to go to the gym with them but I just can’t have the luxury of time. Most of the time I go home right away when I get off from work 🙂

I’ve never done these on my stability ball. I usually do them on my bench with my easy curl bar. I do think they work really well but not my favorite. I think having someone there to help the first couple of times is a good idea. It’s easy to go to far and pull a muscle.

definitely–if you have never done these before, you should have some sort of support!
