Wall Sit

| Fitness Index


Move Targets: Total body


Step 1: Lean your back against a wall, making sure that your whole back is touching the wall. Your feet should be about two feet from the wall and about shoulder-width apart from each other.

Step 2: Slowly slide your back down the wall until your thighs are parallel to the ground. Aim for a 90-degree angle. Keep your weight in the heels of your feet and make sure your knees are behind your toes. You should be able to tap your toes. Keep your back flat against the wall. If it starts to arch, slide up until the small of your back is touching the wall again.


Step 3: Lift right leg for 30 seconds, then switch and lift left leg for 30 seconds.


Modification (Beginner): Aim for a 45-degree angle to start, but keep the same posture: back flat against wall, weight in your heels and knees above your ankles rather than over your toes.
