Starting position

Stand upright with your feet shoulder-width apart. Hold the medicine ball with both hands in front of your chest.


Keeping your chest up and back straight, brace your core while you drive your hips back into a sitting position. Lower yourself until your thighs are parallel or close to parallel with the ground. Pause and then push yourself back up through your whole foot to the starting position. Keep your knees from caving in at any point during the movement.
