Floating Feet

Daily physical activity contributes to many aspects of our overall health and wellbeing — from improved flexibility and balance to stronger muscles and bones. As we find ourselves spending more time at home, it can be difficult to find ways to move. And that’s why you should have a handful of anytime exercises in your repertoire to do throughout the day. Let’s start with “Floating Feet.”

Floating feet is an ideal exercise for individuals who want to work discreetly work their core and quadriceps. It might look easy, but, when done properly, floating feet will put a nice strain on your abdominals. Position yourself towards the end of the chair and sit down with your back straight. Use your hands to hold on to the sides, tighten your core, and slowly lift your feet 3 to 6 inches off the ground. You should feel your abdominal muscles — not your lower back — bearing the brunt of the strain. Hold for up to 30 seconds and slowly lower your feet back to the ground.
