How to stay in Motion while Sitting

Chair exercise is mainly geared for those who are at an increased risk of falling, have severe joint problems, or are wheelchair-bound. Exercise is important for people of all ages and fitness levels because it increases strength, flexibility and blood circulation while improving your mood! MPR Physical Therapy Assistant, Amy Ramos, demonstrates three full-body chair exercises that involve both the upper and lower body as well as core muscles.

Exercise 1:  Leg kick with twist – targets thighs and waist

Exercise 2:  Skater reach – targets core, waist, legs

Exercise 3: Seated running – targets core muscles, arms and legs
