Wobble Board Push-ups

The wobble board push-up mainly targets the chest muscles. However, it actually works just about all upper body muscles to some degree. The following are instructions for how to perform this exercise: First, kneel down on the ground and place your hands on the outer portion of the wobble board. The body should be suspended off the ground on four contact points: the toes and hands. Next, ensure your back is straight, then slowly lower your upper body until the chest is a few inches from the wobble board. The elbows should bend roughly 90 degrees. Slowly push back up to the starting position. Be sure to exhale as you push. Repeat the exercise for several repetitions.

The purpose of the wobble board is to improve proprioception or one's ability to sense body positioning (a.k.a. kinesthetic awareness). This is important for balance. For most, the wobble board adds only a moderate degree of difficulty in comparison to the traditional push-up. It is said that the addition of the wobble board engages the stabilizer muscles because the exercise is being performed on an unstable surface. However, the same muscles are also engaged during a traditional push-up. So it's difficult to say with certainty whether the wobble board provides a significant advantage over other push-up variations. The wobble board push-up mainly targets the chest muscles.
