Place your right hand on a chair or desk, using only 2-3 fingers for balance.How to do it Place your right hand on a chair or desk, using only 2-3 fingers for balance. (Do not lean or place weight on this hand or arm.) Bring your right leg toward your butt. Keep your head up, back straight and your left knee slightly flexed.Next, slowly lower your body 4-5 inches. Don’t allow the knee to travel too far in front of the left foot and don’t bow at the waist. Return to the start position without fully extending the leg. The cadence is one second down and one second up. Alternate legs.When you start, lower the body only 2-3 inches and work until you can reach 5 inches. Begin with 3 sets of 20-30 repetitions and work toward doing 3 minutes (non-stop) on each leg.

What it does This exercise is excellent for muscle endurance because it works all the leg muscles and gluteals. It will help you shift your weight effectively.
