Sit Squat

  • WHY: This exercise will help to strengthen your leg muscles, back muscles, and promote trunk stability
  • HOW: Get set-up on the edge of a chair or surface that you feel comfortable with standing up from without having to use your arms for assistance. Lean forward and lift your butt off the surface, you should now be in a low squat position. Hold this position for 3-5s followed by slowly shifting your weight back towards to the starting position and have a seat on the surface. Repeat
  • FEEL: This should feel like a leg workout. Your butt and thigh muscles should be working hard to maintain the chair squat hold position. Your back and stomach muscles will also be working to maintain optimal trunk position. Follow the video for other cues and tips.
