Typically, when we stand up from a seated position, we tend to round or hinge from our lower back, which can strain it. Today, I'll introduce you to a straightforward four-step process that involves hinging from your hips and reducing stress on your lower back.


Let's break it down. The first step is to shift forward on your chair or couch. Next, we'll arch our lower back, essentially opening up the chest and pushing out our belly button. Moving on to the third step, place your hands on your knees. Using your hands on your knees, assist yourself by pushing and driving your hips forward as you rise.


It's crucial to maintain the arch in your lower back throughout this process. Let's review it one more time. Start by scooting forward on the chair, then arch your lower back by opening up your chest. Place your hands on your knees, and using them, push and drive your hips forward as you rise.
