Did you know performing simple gentle seated exercise can improve your mobility, strength and confidence too?
Don’t worry if you’ve been inactive for a while, our seated exercises are simple, easy-to-follow and can all be done in the comfort of your own home. Remember, it’s always good to speak to your GP before starting any new exercise regime.
For chair-based exercises, you’ll need to choose a stable, solid chair. You should be able to sit with your feet flat on the floor and your knees bent at right angles. Avoid chairs with arms as this will restrict you with your movement and make it difficult to follow some of the resistance band exercises. Always wear loose and comfortable clothing and have a bottle/glass of water to hand.
Remember to build up your fitness level slowly and gradually increase the number of repetitions you can do over time.
If you’d prefer, when doing your sit-to-stand, put the chair back against the wall ensuring it doesn’t slip.
