Chair Sit Exercise for Bone Health

Step 1

Use a stable chair on a flat surface.  This chair should be wide enough to sit comfortably.

Step 2

Back up to the chair and slowly allow yourself to sit down into the seat, using the strength of your legs to lower you.  If desired, lift your arms to provide a counter-balance as you sit.

Step 3

Once you touch the chair, slowly return to the standing position to complete one repetition.  Repeat 9 more times to complete one set of 10 repetitions.

You’ve completed this one!  Great job!
