Day 40: Leaning leg extensions

Today's exercise comes from the Office Chair Workout plan on the Web site, EmpowerWomenNow, but  rest assured the exercise is good for both men and women. The exercises on this site are designed to invigorate the entire body. The entire Office Chair Workout is a 12-exercise plan. Here is one of the exercises.
 
Step 1: Stand up facing your desk chair.
Step 2: Lean forward placing your hands on the chair (or the arms of the chair, if your chair has arms), with your back parallel to the floor.
Step 3: Extend your right leg back so that you make a straight line from your shoulders to your heels.
Step 4: Return your leg to the floor.
Step 5: Repeat 15 times.
Step 6: Switch to your left leg and repeat 15 more times.
 
The rest of the 12-step Office Chair Workout is available on EmpowerWomenNow.com.
