How do I use an exercise ball for upper-body conditioning?

Exercise Balls Add Power to Your Push-ups

One way to build upper-body strength with an exercise ball is to roll across the top of the ball so your lower legs and feet rest on the ball while your hands are on the floor in pushup position. Do 10-15 pushups with your feet on the ball. This will not only build upper body strength, but it helps to increase your core body strength because you will engage your core muscles to keep your balance and keep from falling off the ball.
