Body-Weight Wall Squat for Women
Body-Weight Wall Squat
- Lean back against a wall, with your feet about 2 feet away from it and shoulder-width apart.
- Keeping your back against the wall, bend your knees slightly so that your body descends a few inches. Now hold that position for 5 to 10 seconds.
- Continue to lower yourself a few inches at time, four more times.
- Once you've paused at all five positions, stand up and rest. That's one set.
Tip The pause technique helps eliminate weaknesses throughout the entire range of motion of the squat. In the last position, your upper thighs should be parallel to the floor or lower.
