Getting Off the Ground & Back Down

We’re traditionally taught that to get someone off the floor, have them lean on a chair, get one leg up and push to straighten the knee until the other leg can plant the foot to have 2 legs to stand on. This requires a significant amount of compression force through the knee and very strong quad muscles. I remember going through this method and always struggling when someone had knee pain or very weak legs. And then my mom taught me a different way.
