Performing an overhead triceps extension while sitting on an exercise ball also enhances your balance. Why? Because sitting on the ball engages your core muscles and keeps you from falling off the ball. Be sure to keep your abs tight to avoid arching and straining your back. Hold one end of a dumbbell in each hand, with your arms bent at 90 degrees. Slowly extend your arms until the dumbbell is above your head. Repeat 8-15 times, then rest and do another set of 8-15 repetitions.
