When was the last time you challenged yourself or someone else to wall sit?
Wall sits are a great lower body exercise. The 1 leg, stability ball, and medicine ball exercises challenge your core muscles as well!
I’ll walk you through the modified wall sit, then you can see the picture examples for progressions.
*Modified Wall Sit: Stand against the wall with your heels about 15 inches away. Slide down to about a 45 degree angle. Your weight should be evenly distributed on your feet. If you can’t press your heels down, your feet are too close to the wall. Press your hips, shoulder blades, and head to the wall and lengthen your spine for stability.
Here’s the challenge:
How long can you hold it? Time yourself!

1-Legged Wall Sit:

Happy Mom’s Day!
