Remember: Before starting any serious workout program be sure to check with your physician.
Sit in a straight back, armless chair and grip the sides of the seat with each hand. Keeping your knees together and your back straight, slowly raise your legs toward your chest (but don’t lean forward to “meet” them). Get them as close to your chest as you can… hold for a second and lower your legs so they almost touch the floor. Repeat 15 times.
Bring your hands together at the back of your neck, keeping your elbows straight out to your sides. Slowly lean forward and crunch your rib cage toward your pelvis. Hold for 2 seconds and return to upright position. Repeat 15 times.
