Stand in front of your chair. With your left foot on the seat, drop your right knee so it forms a 90-degree angle with the floor. After 10 seconds, switch legs.
Single Leg Hip Bridge
Facing the chair, lie down on your back. Put your legs in tabletop position, and then rest your right ankle on the seat, your left leg lifted in the air. Keep your arms on the floor and lift your hips up and down. Perform this move for 10 seconds, then switch legs.
Plank and Leg Lift
Get into a plank position with your hands on the chair. Alternate lifting each leg in the air. Try this one for 20 seconds.
