How many times can you sit and stand from a chair in 30 seconds? In this video, SilverSneakers fitness expert David Jack explains how this quick—but important—test can give you clues about your lower-body strength and endurance.

You’ll need a regular, sturdy chair with a seat that’s about 17 inches high. Try the test now, then see what your results mean below. If you’re not able to sit and stand on your own power safely, skip the test, but check out the tips below. . . .
