6. Standing Wall Squat

Targets glutes, quads, calves

Stand with the ball behind your lower back, pressing it into a wall behind you. Take a small step forward, continuing to press lower back and hips into the ball. Bend knees 90 degrees; keep knees over ankles and lower back pressed into the ball. Hold for 3 breaths, then straighten legs. Work toward 3 sets of 10 to 12 reps.

Challenge yourself: Lift one foot off the floor. Do 10 reps; switch sides; complete 3 sets.

@ tweetylc13 - i think you are meant to rest your non moving legs ankle on top of your moving legs knee(lower thigh), that way you are balancing with one leg and it makes you have to engage your core more. Hope that made sense.

How can you do it with just one leg for the challenge? Where do you place non-moving leg?
