Now, bend your knees and push your butt back to take your body to a seated position. As you are bringing your body down to the seated position, engage the quads and glutes. Even after attaining the seated position, you must keep your muscles engaged. Stand up slowly and again repeat the act. Performing three to five sets of the exercise with 10 to 15 repetitions in each. If you find yourself struggling to perform the exercise with a chair, use a taller object. A few weeks of practice will make you fit enough to perform the exercise using a chair.
