Insider's Guide to Stability Balls
6. Standing Wall Squat
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.
