Wall Squat with Ball

Wall squat with ball

  1. Stand with your back facing a wall. Place your feet about shoulder-width apart.
  2. Place the exercise ball between your middle back and the wall. Move your feet out in front of you so they are about a foot in front of your hips. Tighten your belly muscles by pulling your belly button in toward your spine.
  3. Slowly squat down as if you are going to sit in a chair, rolling your back over the ball as you squat. The ball should move with you but stay pressed into the wall.
  4. Be sure that your knees do not go in front of your toes as you squat.
  5. Hold for about 6 seconds.
  6. Slowly rise to your standing position.
  7. Repeat 8 to 12 times.
