To start the single leg squat matrix with the stability ball, elevate yourself a little bit so each time you do a single leg squat you can work the opposite leg below the plane of the foot that you're standing on. At the same time, move the medicine ball away from you so your body has to control that shift and momentum that happens each time. Squat down on your right leg and reach out with your left foot in the sagittal plane below the right foot, immediately transferring out to the frontal plane, back to the sagittal plane and in the posterior direction. After you've gone through that matrix several times, reverse the process by doing the same thing on the opposite leg.
