Exercise Advice: This exercise is the same as the barbell bench press, except that you will be using an exercise band instead of a barbell (see illustration). The band will be anchored by being placed securely beneath the exercise ball. Begin by simultaneously pressing both handles up toward the ceiling. Be sure that when your hands reach the top of the movement that you really squeeze your pec muscles together and hold for two-count prior to returning to the start position. Repeat this movement for as many repetitions as you can until failure.
