Seated Pillow Squeeze

January 18, 2012

Seated Pillow Squeeze

You don’t have to spend money and time on a gym membership to exercise if you have knee osteoarthritis. A seated pillow squeeze is a simple workout which can be performed at home without the use of complicated equipment. This exercise uses a pillow and a chair!

Using a sturdy chair (not one with wheels), sit upright with your feet firmly placed on the ground. Place a pillow folded in half in between your knees, and squeeze slowly counting to 5. You should feel your muscles contract in your inner thighs. Repeat this for 12 times taking 20 second breaks in between sets.
