With tricep extensions supine, start with your shoulder girdle and head supported on the stability ball. Do a good bridge position here where you stabilize through your hips and lower extremities. Raise the dumbbells up directly over your shoulders and keep the upper arm always perpendicular to the floor as you bend your elbows, lowering the weights back towards your head on either side of your face, not directly at your face, and then fully extending at the top. As you do this you have to maintain good stability throughout the whole body with minimal movement of the ball as the weight is lowered and then extended up overhead.
