The sumo squat with medicine ball involves a deeper bending of the knees than the previous squatting exercises. Care should be taken to move slowly and fluidly to avoid straining the knees.
Start with legs as wide apart as you can comfortably stand.
Bend your knees out to the side, and lower the medicine ball toward the floor.
Make sure to keep your back straight.
Contract your leg muscles and squeeze your inner thighs and butt on the way up.
