9. Wall sit:

Wall sit or wall squat is a simple body-weight exercise that will test the strength and endurance of your lower body. But be warned. This exercise works a little different than the typical body weight squats since you’re holding your body in a static position for a certain period of time.

How to do:

  • To start, lean against the wall with your feet hip-width apart planted firmly on the ground.
  • Your feet also should be about 2 feet away from the wall.Now brace your abs and slowly slide down the wall with your back pressed against the wall until your legs are bent at the 90 degree angle.
  • This angle is very crucial because if your thighs are not parallel to the ground, your leg muscles will not get a workout.
  • Knees should be directly above your ankles and your back should be touching the wall at all times. Hold this position for 20-60 seconds.
