Exercises to strengthen your legs
The "sitting on an invisible chair" exercise: Stand with your feet apart and parallel with the width of your hips, stretch your arms out in front of you and lower yourself gently until your thighs are parallel with the floor.
Lift up, but not so far that your legs are completely stretched out, and repeat.
> Do 2 to 3 sets of 20 reps quite slowly, with 2 minutes rest between the sets.
Sit on a mat with your hands on the floor and a foot against the wall. Bend your other leg and place your foot up in the air.
Using your foot as a support, lift your pelvis then lower it to ground level without sitting down fully then lift again.
> Do 3 to 6 sets of 10 reps on each leg, with 2 minutes rest between each set.
