Stability Ball Flys are an excellent exercise for the chest and shoulders. Unlike their bench counterparts, they even engage your core. So, if you’d like to build some definition or strengthen your shoulders, here’s how to do Stability Ball Flys.


How to do stability ball flys 

  • Grab some dumbbells appropriate to your strength level and an exercise ball that is about knee height or slightly above it.
  • Sit on the ball and roll down until your body and upper legs are parallel to the floor. Your knees should be bent at about 90 degrees, and your feet should be flat on the ground about shoulder-width apart.
  • With your elbows slightly bent, lower your arms to the sides until you feel a slight stretch in your chest. At the bottom of the position, your palms should face upward. 
  • Lift your arms back above your chest, engaging your pecs and core
  • Repeat for 10 reps in 3 sets or as your ability allows


The benefits of Stability Ball Flys

Flys are a great way to work on your pecs and, to a lesser extent, the deltoids and biceps. Doing flys on a stability ball adds to the challenge, as you’ll need to engage your core, glutes, and leg muscles to keep yourself stable throughout. 

Exercise balls are also less expensive and cumbersome than a bench, making this exercise easier to do at home if you don’t like working out at the gym.
