Try Chair Squats to Practice Using Your Legs and Gluts in the Correct Way

Did you try squatting and find it too challenging for you at this time? Practicing going from sit to stand without your hands is a great place to start. This movement helps you practice using your legs and gluts in the correct way.

Here you can see that Courtney shifts her weight forward over her feet (nose over toes) to help her gain momentum. She drives up through her legs and squeezes her gluts to assist herself to full standing. She slowly returns to sitting, forcing her gluts and quads to control her descent. Remember, just like with squatting, you want to sit your weight back and down. #followuppost
