Setup instructions

1) Sit on a chair/bench/plyo box with your chest up and core tight.

2) Place heels fairly close to chair/bench/plyo box

Perform instructions

1) Hinge from the hips and shift your weight to the heels/sides of feet.

2) Push off from the heels and hinge upwards coming to full standing.

2) Pause for a second and lower yourself back to sitting - hinge from the hips and bend your knees. The glutes should make contact with the chair first. Keep the back flat.

Note: For added difficulty, place your hands on opposite shoulders (so they can't assist you).
