Here's how to do a chair stand with staggered legs exercise:

Reps: 8-12
Sets: 1-3
Intensity: Moderate
Tempo: 3-1-3
Rest: 30-90 seconds between sets

Starting position: Sit up straight near the front edge of a sturdy chair with your arms crossed and fingers touching opposite shoulders. Position your feet hip-width apart and stagger them by moving one foot forward.

Movement: Smoothly stand up with your knees and hips pointing straight ahead. Pause, then return to the starting position. After completing the 8-12 reps in one set, move the opposite foot forward and repeat the movement for the next set.

Tips and techniques:
  • Maintain neutral posture throughout the movement.
  • Tighten the muscles in your abdomen and buttocks.
Too hard? Line up your feet evenly, hip-width apart, in the starting position.

Too easy? Lift your arms over your head. Keep your shoulders down and back throughout the move.
