Sunday Exercise Idea: Wall Sit and Lunge

Bodyweight exercises are a simple, effective way to improve balance, flexibility, and strength without machinery or extra equipment. From legs and shoulders to chest and abs, we’ve covered every part of the body that can get stronger with body resistance alone.
Wall sit exercise works the entire muscular system of the lower body, it builds your isometric strength and endurance in glutes, calves and quadriceps.

1. Wall Sit

Who needs a chair when there’s a wall?
1 Slowly slide your back down a wall until the thighs are parallel to the ground.
2 Make sure the knees are directly above the ankles and keep the back straight.
3 Go for 60 seconds per set (or however long it takes to turn those legs to jelly).
Need more fire? Add some bicep curls.
