Athlete moves from the standing position to a squatting position with the hips below the knees, and back flat against a wall with hands in front. Athlete holds position.

How to do a Wall Sit

Stance: Feet 6 inches from a wall, toes slightly out, back against the wall (no pun intended)

  • Squat down to hip crease below knee crease keeping back against the wall the entire time
  • Hold squat with your hands in front, not resting on your knees

Wall Sits are Great For

The Wall Sit is a compound, full body exercise that trains primarily the muscles of the hips, thighs, butt, hamstrings, and quads. The wall sit also strengthens ligaments, bones, and tendons throughout the lower body. Wall sits are a vital exercise for increasing the strength of your butt and legs.

Modification Options

The higher you sit on the wall, the easier the movement will be.
