Physical Therapy Month- Exercise Challenge of the Week, The Sit to Stand

This week’s exercise challenge is the sit to stand. The sit to stand is a great exercise for trunk and lower body strength. It is a fundamental movement pattern and can be a great tool to identify asymmetries and unilateral weaknesses. Perform slowly with controlled movements. Notice if you favor one side or the other.  Work to be as symmetrical as possible. Repeat 10-15 repetitions 3 times this week.

Check out this video to learn how to include the right sit to stand exercise for you.
