Exercise of the Week: Sit Stands

Exercise of the Week:  Sit Stands

Coach Kristie demonstrates the exercise of the week, Sit Stands.  Start in the standing position, feet together.  Activate core and glutes, lower yourself as if you are going to actually sit in a low chair.  Hold 1-3 seconds, return to standing position.  Start with 3 sets of 10-12 reps.

This exercise strengthens the legs and core helping with better balance and posture.

To increase difficulty you can squeeze a ball between the knees and/or incorporate resistance bands that you place under your feet, hold other end with your hands and pull up as you go into the “sit” position.
