An early stage strengthening exercise primarily for the gluteal and quadriceps muscle groups. Also excellent core exercise. Beneficial for team sports (football, rugby, hockey, netball), tennis and running. Also helpful for those with hip or knee problems.

Squatting with the gym ball is an excellent exercise, which your physiotherapist may prescribe to you prior to progressing you onto a full squat.

Have your feet in a comfortable position, between hip and shoulder width apart – you may find it more comfortable to have your feet slightly turned out.

As you squat down try to maintain your trunk in a line parallel with your shin bones, whilst keeping your knees aligned with your feet.
