Killer Squat

I love combining strength , balance and core work all in one exercise!  Here is a killer squat exercise that works the legs and the core.  The trick with this exercise is to keep the arms very straight throughout the movement.  When the ball is lifted above the head, pull the biceps back firmly to your ears.  This will engage the important postural muscles of the upper middle back.  Use a 10-20 pound medicine ball.  This ball has handles that allows for an easy grip.
