There are many benefits to regular physical activity and exercise, including maintaining muscle mass, improving your balance, and preventing falls. If you aren’t comfortable with leaving your home, you can still find ways to exercise with items found around the home.

One such exercise is the Chair Squat. Use the following steps to perform it correctly:

  1. Stand in front of a chair with your feet as far apart as your shoulders.
  2. Bend your knees while keeping your shoulders and chest upright.
  3. Lower your bottom so you sit down.
  4. Finish by pushing your body back up and return to a standing position.

Please be sure to consult with your doctor before attempting certain exercises that you may feel uncomfortable performing. Whenever exercising make sure you have others around or can contact them quickly.
