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!
