Move Targets: Glutes and Quads


Step 1: Grab a sturdy chair and walk your feet out about 6 to 8 inches. Keep them hip-width apart with toes pointing forward. Keep your chest up and proud, shoulders back and down.


Step 2: With control, hinge at your hips like you're going into a squat. Extend your arms out in front of you for balance. Once your reach the chair, allow yourself to sit only on the edge. Do not shift your weight back, but lean forward slightly so keep the quads engaged.


Step 3: Reverse the movement by squeezing the quads and glutes to rise up while you drive your weight through the heels. Keep your torso upright. You can widen your stance if you need more stability.
