This is a great exercise for beginner exercisers. You can use a chair or wall as an assist. Once you feel comfortable with your balance and leg strength, you can progress to other squat exercises.
Step By Step Instructions
Stand with a chair behind you, keeping feet slightly wider than hip-width apart.
Squat down to a sitting position in the chair, focusing on keeping hips back and arms out in front. Body should touch the chair very briefly, then stand back up, dropping your hands to the sides. Once comfortable with form, you can remove the chair while focusing on keeping the hips back during the squat.
