  • Keeping the knee centered over the ball of the foot, lower into a squat position.
  • Start with shallow squats.
  • Once you develop your strength, coordination, and balance, you can add hand weights, or hold a medicine ball to build additional strength.

  • Over time, consider performing the squat on an unstable or smaller surface such as a mini trampoline or balance beam.
