FLEX TIME SIT-DOWN SQUAT.

Works on: quadriceps, hamstrings, buttocks.

THE MOVE

Setup: With your back facing the chair seat, stand with your feet hip-width apart, arms by your sides.

Step 1: Keeping your belly button pulled in, tailbone pointing down and weight on your heels, exhale as you slowly bend your knees and slowly lower yourself down to the chair seat, simultaneously extending both arms in front of you at shoulder height.

Step 2: Gently tap the seat of the chair with your buttocks, then inhale as you slowly return to standing position. Take about 2 counts to lower and 2 counts to come back up.

Fit tip: To make this exercise easier, use a taller chair. To make it more challenging, use a shorter chair, stand with each foot on a book, or hold a 3- to 5-pound dumbbell in each hand.

Repetitions: Do this exercise 10 times.
