Stability Ball Wall Squat
This exercise strengthens the core, hamstrings and glutes
This exercise works the entire lower portion of the body, which means it helps strengthen the legs as well as shaping your backside.
Using a stability ball will give you the added security for balance until you master the proper form.
Start off by doing two sets of 10 squats. You can add 2 pound or 5 pound weights in each hand for more resistance whenever you feel ready to challenge yourself a bit more.
How to perform the Stability Ball Wall Squat:
- Stand facing away from a wall with feet shoulder-width apart, and position a medium-size stability ball between lower back and wall.
- Shift weight onto heels, and press back into ball, contracting core muscles. Bend knees until thighs are parallel to floor as you lower body toward floor, rolling ball down the wall.
- Press against ball, and slowly move back to start position. Perform 10 to 12 squats.
