Seated exercises are a great way to get your blood pumping and body moving in a safe and comfortable way. The intention of seated exercises is to simply check-in with your body and focus on specific muscle groups one at a time. These gentle exercises can be done at home and help to improve your overall mobility when practiced on a regular basis.
For these exercises, choose a solid, stable chair that does not have wheels and is sturdy.
The chair should allow you to have both feet firmly planted on the ground, with your knees comfortably bent at a 90 degree angle. Try to avoid any chairs that restrict motion and have arm rests or other obstacles. You’ll want to wear loose and comfortable clothing and don’t forget to have water handy to help you stay hydrated!
Keep in mind: take your time with each exercise and don’t do anything that causes pain or discomfort. The goal is to gradually increase the repetitions of each stretch and exercise over time.
Try to do these exercises at least twice a week. You can even combine them with the other strengthening exercises or stretching routines. The goal is consistency! No need to push yourself to extremes. Just a little bit of movement every day.
Seated exercises are a great alternative to more intense workout programs. They help increase daily activity and mobility and can significantly improve overall health!
