Perhaps you’ve been doing a little more sitting than usual lately. Along with working your back muscles, you should involve harmonious action with your glutes, hamstrings, and abs. This exercise is great for stability training, and can help improve flexibility and mobility. Rick DiScipio, Assistant Manager of Fitness at FitRec, demonstrates proper form on this exercise in the video below.
1) Place ball behind mid-back and face away from the wall.
2) Stand with feet about shoulder-width apart, toes pointed straight ahead.
3) Squat 90 degrees, keeping your chest up, glutes back towards the wall, and knees over your feet.
4) Complete 3 sets of 12 reps.
