Stay strong and limber while you garden with three simple moves from certified personal trainer Anna Griffith of Performative Element.
Squat with bench
Legs, core; good for coordination.
1 Sit on a garden bench or a chair with your feet slightly wider than hip-width apart.
2 Start to stand: Lifting your seat about one foot off the bench, keeping the weight in your heels, sticking your glutes out and opening your chest.
3 Pull your abdominals in toward your spine and stand up.
4 Slowly sit back down.
5 Repeat 10 times from the seated starting position.
