Step 1: Stand with your back to your chair with your feet a little farther than shoulder-width apart. Extend your arms in front of you at shoulder level.

Step 2: Lower down slowly, keeping your back straight, until you're almost sitting in your chair. Your knees shouldn't pass your toes, but be positioned over your ankles. 

Step 3: Hold the position for 5 seconds and then come back up.

Step 4: Try 2 sets of 10, resting for a couple of minutes between sets.

I'm a recent amputee (right leg below the knee) and I'm trying some of these. I am enjoying the challenge. I don't try the ones that would put me in peril. Thanks for sending these out for us.
