Day 27: Chair single-leg squats

This quick exercise challenges your quadriceps, the gluteal muscles, and works on your balance. If you use a chair with wheels, consider bracing the chair against a wall or against your desk.
Step 1: Sit in chair.
Step 2: Keeping your back straight, lift your right leg so it is slightly off the floor.
Step 3: Put your hands straight out in front of you.
Step 4: Inhale deeply, then exhale.
Step 5: Stand, keeping your leg off the floor and squeezing your buttocks (gluteal) muscles.
Step 6: Return to sitting position.
Step 7: Repeat 10 times, lifting and lowering your body at the same speed.
Step 8: Switch legs.
Do three sets of 10 squats for each leg.
To keep your balance, you can let the toe of your lifted foot touch the ground, as long as you don't put your weight on it.
