Looking for a good way to work your hamstrings and butt that is not squats and/or lunges? If you have access to an exercise ball then you should try the Lying Hamstring Curl with the ball.
- Start by lying flat on your back with an exercise ball under your heels. Bridge your hips up and hold that position through the entire exercise.
- Flex your feet and dig your heels into the ball. Place your arms straight out to your side for support — don't use them though, they are just for support.
- Slowly roll the ball towards your body as you curl your heels. Keep your hips in the bridge position, don't thrust them towards the ceiling as you do the move.
- Then slowly return to the start position (straight legs, hips bridged) to complete one rep.
- Do three sets of 10-15.
