Get it Right Get It Tight

Move Targets: Glutes, Quads and Abs


Step 1: Stand in front of the chair so your heels are about 6 inches away from the chair legs. Stand tall with the abs pulled in and chest lifted.

Step 2: Shift the hips backward to find the edge of the chair. Sit down, leaning back into a straight spine, no farther!

Step 3: Exhale and use the heels of your feet to drive you upward as you squeeze the glutes. Keep the arms out in front so you're not tempted to use them for assistance!
