move of the week: the sit-to-stand
Last night, while flipping through my camera roll on my phone, I realized I had some outtakes from my Home for the Holidays workout. What better than to share one of the moves with you?!
Enter the sit-to-stand.
This is a one-legged strength exercise that challenges your balance, your core, and your legs. This exercise is great for runners. And bonus–no equipment required!
Step 2 + 3: Keeping your right leg elevated, use your left leg to lower down and sit.
Step 4: Press through that left leg to come up to standing.
Complete about 10-20 reps and repeat on the other leg.
There are tons of ways to add a challenge to this move–you could hold a kettlebell for weight, add a hop at the top of the move with your standing foot, whatever your heart desires! Get creative…
In other news, I’m finally working out today! Going to hop in to a Pure Barre class. 🙂
