You do not need any gym equipment to do this exercise; all you need is a wall. Wall squats are usually done by athletes to build strength. This exercise is done by holding the body in the squat position with your back against the wall.
Benefits of wall squats
The exercise helps in building endurance in the quadriceps, glutes and calves, according to verywellfit.com, by holding the position for as long as you can. This helps you keep muscle balance and reduces quad fatigue.
How to do wall squat/wall sit
* Stand with your back flat against the wall. Your feet should be shoulder-width apart.
* Engage the abdominal muscles and slowly slide your back down as you bend your knee so that the thighs are now parallel to the ground.
* Be in the squat position such that the knees are directly above your ankles. Hold the position for 20-60 seconds. Slide back up the wall to return to the starting position.
