Develop stabiliity, balance, core and leg strength by learning how to perform a Fitball squat with the team at Fitness Institute.
To begin, place fitball in your lumbar curve. Feet should be shoulder width apart, with toes pointing forward or slightly outwards (Figure 1).
Please note: Feet should be forward of the body to prevent knees from travelling in front of the toes.
From here, slowly flex the knees and lowering to the bottom of the squat.
Thighs should be roughly parallel to the floor (Figure 2).
Extend the knees with good control to return to starting position.
Remember to seek the advice of your fitness trainer, medical and/or allied health professionals, if you are new to exercise or have an injury or medical condition to consider.
