Chopping down problems getting out of your chair

How to use gravity and your postioning rather than brute force and strength

This problem really needs to be chopped down, and you can do it


Rising from a chair, especially a soft or a low chair is pretty challenging because our knee muscles are in a stretched position and our kneecap has a lot of pressure and contact on it. For these reasons, getting up from sitting can be the hardest part of getting around on our own two feet.

If you can relate this struggle, watch this video to see a practice exercise that teaches you how to stop holding yourself back with your positioning and start getting comfortable with a better technique.

It can be a remarkably simple thing to practice once you know what to do.
