Wall Squat

Target area(s): glutes, quads, hamstrings, back and abs

How to perform a wall squat:

Stand against a wall, with your legs extended out. Your feet should be about 2 feet away from the wall.

Bend your knees to slide your back down the wall.  Try to get your thighs as parallel to the ground as possible.

Hold this for 20 seconds.  Focus on breathing evenly.  Your legs may shake a bit.

Go back to the starting position for 10 seconds.  Repeat 3 -4 more times.
