As much as we hate to admit it, juggling work and family life often get in the way of us being more active. The good news is, these easy-to-follow exercises will slide seamlessly into your day.
Your hands are free, so walls squats are ideal for multi-tasking. Tear off a set while brushing your teeth at home, using your smartphone at the bus shelter, solving a Rubik’s Cube in the lunchroom at work…you get the idea. Aim to complete one set each day this week.
How you’ll benefit:
This intense leg-strengthener works many of the muscles in your lower body. Improve your hockey and golf game (or any sport for that matter), lift heavier objects without killing your back, and increase your stamina in bed (and we don’t mean sleeping).
The easy 3-step method:
- Stand straight with your back up against the wall.
- Slowly lower your body until your knees are at 90 degrees.
- Your goal should be to hold for 15 seconds. The longer you hold, the more intense the wall squat becomes.
