THE GOAL: To sit on the floor, then stand up without using your hands, knees or arms.
HINT: Try crossing your legs 😉
WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT? This exercise requires flexibility, balance, motor coordination, and, most importantly, ample muscle power relative to body weight. This exercise is important as it predicts how autonomous you will be as you age.
