How to Do a Wall Sit

Learn how to do a wall sit from personal trainer Layla Luciano in this Howcast thighs workout video.


Hey, I'm Layla, and I'm going to show you how to do the wall sit.

The wall sit is a really great exercise to target the entire thigh area, your quad, your inner thigh, the back of the leg, the hamstring, and your gluts.

You're just going to find a wall. You're going to come into a squat position. Your feet are going to be out. Your knees are aligned with your ankles, and you're going to push your weight back into the wall here.

You want to make sure that you're digging through your heels as you're in your squat position and that your legs are 90 degrees.

You're just going to hold this here for about 30 seconds. If you're more of a beginner, 30 seconds to a minute. You're going to feel that burn right away, right in that quad area, that thigh area here.

Then just stand up from there. That's how you do the wall sit.
