Single leg sit to stand
This exercise focuses on hip strength and gluteal strength as well as working the quadriceps and challenging your sense of balance. Make sure you do this exercise from a chair that is stable -- not one on rollers! Balance on one leg and slowly lower yourself down until your hips just touch the seat of the chair, then immediately come back up straight. Repeat as directed by the coach, then change legs. Form is important! Do not push past the point of fatigue.
