I was wondering if there were any exercises for keeping good bow pressure. I was told that I have a very light bow (in terms of weight) which might not be helping me.

I don't know about exercises for that but if you use the correct bow hold think about rotating your had using your thumb, first finger and forearm. most of the pressure will be on your right hand pointer finger. I am selling a few forearm and finger exercise tools on Fiddlershop.

FM I understand the finger pushing gizmo but what is it you do with the ball-thingie exactly?

I will be doing a review on that very soon so that you can see what to do with it.
While the ball spins inside the casing in the palm of your hand, you turn it against the torque force, which works your wrist, forearm, and biceps.
