Physio Tips
In order to prevent knee injury it is imperative that you not let your knees move over your toes.
As you descend try and keep your knees centred over the second toe. Don’t let them weave in or out.
You should not have knee or back pain while performing this ball exercise. If you do, consult a physical therapist.
Progression
Hold dumbbells by your side to increase the resistance.
Try Single Leg Squat.
