EASY HOME EXERCISE: Squat with Core Ball Push-out

This exercise works on the entire body, mainly concentrating on the lower body and shoulders. To perform this exercise correctly:

1. Start with feet shoulder width apart, toes pointing slightly angled out
2. Make sure hips, knees and toes are aligned correctly throughout the range of motion
3. Hands are placed on the core ball, holding the core ball in front of the chest, but not resting on the chest. As you lower your center of gravity, the glutes push back (as if you were sitting down), bending at the hips and knees
4. Holding the squat position, push out the core ball in front of the body, extending the arms and hold for a 2 seconds
5. As you return to starting position, the ball returns to the front of the chest
6. Make sure the knees don’t pass over the toes, and stay on your heels
7. Also make sure that you don’t lean too forward, which can cause strain on the lower back
8. Remember to keep the core tight throughout the range of motion
