Gym Move 2: Wall Squat
Works: thighs, butt
A. Stand with a stability ball between your back and a wall. As you lean against the ball, take a step forward, making sure heels are farther away from the wall than hips. Reach arms straight out at chest height.
B. Tighten your abs and bend your legs until your thighs are about parallel to the floor and your knees line up over your ankles.
C. Hold two seconds, then straighten legs, rolling ball up the wall. Do eight to 12 reps.
Tip: Avoid a deflating workout—roll the ball away from sharp objects, including corners.
