Exercise Of The Week: Chair Squats

This week, we’re sharing how to do Chair Squats, which work the quadriceps, glutes, hamstrings, calves, and the core.


  • Stand with feet hip-width apart in front of chair [A].
  • With arms stretched out in front, push pelvis back into sitting position without touching chair [B].
  • Tighten core muscles and keep weight on heels.
  • Return to starting position.
  • Do 15 reps.

A study years ago showed that among an older population, being able to complete this exercise, and the ability to maintain a quick pace of gait, predicted a longer, healthier life!

Please make sure to check with your provider before starting any new exercise regimen.
