Featuring Jackson Sayers, B.Sc. (Kinesiology)
Gluteal Squat-Assisted Exercise
Duration: 58 seconds

To increase the intensity and to work on your balance when you're doing a standing squat I like the really small flotation ball.

It makes balancing so much more harder than even the large BOSU ball. So what I like to do is just get on that ball, get a nice pelvis position, get really comfortable there, and from there we simply start to do the squat.

And what you want to be thinking about is really focusing on your balance. Keep that ball in a nice steady position and get down into a nice full squat.

And from there we want to hold it, get very comfortable, stay in a nice balanced position, and then start to come up very slowly into a full position, not quite all the way up but right to about there and from there we can on a repeatable fashion, 10 to 15 reps and it's a very good exercise for working the squat muscles and working your balance.
