Chair Squats: Stand in front of a chair with your feet hip-width apart. Slowly lower your buns toward the chair without actually sitting down. Keep your knees over your ankles and place your weight in your heels throughout the full range of motion. Straighten your body upright and repeat.
Have I told you just how much I LOVE Pop Sugar? They have some great articles…please “pop” over there to see more great exercises. But before you do, practice the Chair Squat. This is a great functional fitness exercise – because we all have to sit down and get back up and some point during our day! This will tone and shape your bottom and the fronts of your legs.
When you’re ready to dig deeper – go lower! Move that chair out of the way and get your butt below your knees – but always keep your knees behind your toes!
