Ball squat with front raise

For butt, thighs, and shoulders

A. Stand with feet shoulder-width apart and arms at your sides, pressing a stability ball between your lower back and a wall.

B. Keeping the ball pressed against the wall, squat until thighs are nearly parallel to the floor and lift arms in front of you to shoulder height. Hold this position for 2–3 seconds, then lower your arms and return to standing. Do 3 sets of 10–12 reps, holding the last rep in each set for 10–15 seconds, and resting for 30 seconds between sets. 

Trainer tip: For more of a challenge, hold a 5-pound dumbbell in each hand or a 10-pound medicine ball with both hands through­out the move.
