Squats with a stability
ball are a really gentle
way to get core work and
leg work accomplished with one exercise.
Put your stability ball up against a wall.
And, right at the small of your back,
the lower part of your back, so
that you can comfortably lean on it.
And, have your feet ever so
slightly in front of your hips so
that you have, what you're going for
is that, by the time you get down
into the squat position that your
legs are parallel to the ground and
you've got a 90 degree
angle with your legs.
So feet slightly forward of your hips, and
then keeping your shoulders relaxed and
your hands pulled down
like you do in mountain pose,
pelvis tilted forward ever so
slightly, just like in mountain,
and then it's a simple.
You never lock your legs
when you get to the top.
Keep your knees slightly
bent at all times.
And you want to keep your knees so
that they're not splayed out,
they're not pointing in, they're
coming in directly over your heels.
And good alignment.
[SOUND] And eight or
ten of these to begin with.
see how many you can [SOUND] build up to.
[SOUND] This gives you
good back support and
works your core and your lower body.
Stability ball squats.
