Mini Exercises – Leg Raise
This movement helps improve your balance while strengthening your hips, thighs, and glutes. It’s something you can perform at a standing meeting, or just for a few moments while you’re up on your feet. Here’s how to do it:
With your feet slightly apart, stand behind a sturdy chair, which you can hold onto for balance. Slowly lift one leg out to the side, keeping your back straight and your toes facing forward. Make sure not to lock your standing leg – add a slight bend to it if it is locked. Hold your lifted leg in the lifted position for at least one second. Then slowly lower it back to the ground. Repeat this movement for 10 to 15 times. Then repeat these steps with the other leg.
