Swiss-Ball Body-Weight Wall Squat for Women
Swiss-Ball Body-Weight Wall Squat
- Hold a Swiss ball behind you and stand so that the ball is pinned between your back and the wall. Place your feet about 2 feet in front of your body.
- Keeping your back in contact with the ball, lower your body until your upper thighs are at least parallel to the floor.
Tip If you have trouble doing a standard body-weight squat, try the Swiss-ball version. It requires less core strength which makes the exercise easier while helping you learn perfect form.
