• Stability Ball Exericse

    Squats with a Stability Ball

    1. Stand with the exercise ball propped between your lower (lumbar) spine and a wall, pressing slightly into the ball. With hands at your sides or on hips, check that your feet are hip-width apart and slightly in front of you.
    2. Bending at your knees and hips, slowly move into a sitting position with your knees over your ankles. Keep the ball in contact with your back as you move.
    3. Return to standing position, keeping the ball in contact with your back as you move. 

    Repeat 8-15 times.

    Make it Challenging!!! Lift one foot 1 or 2 inches off the floor and try doing the exercise with one leg at a time. Switch and repeat with the other leg.
