Exercise of the Month: Seated Single-Leg Raises

January 2020

Seated single-leg raises work your core and can also help stabilize your knees after an injury.


  1. Sit upright in a chair with one knee bent and one extended.
  2. Flex the foot of your extended leg to a 90-degree angle and gradually raise that leg until it’s about a foot off the floor.
  3. Lower it slowly and repeat.
  4. Switch legs and repeat.

Duration: 3 sets of 10 repetitions
