12 Days of Fitness Day #2: Wall Squat

On the second day of Fitness

My Y Coach gave to me

2 minutes of wall squats

And one minute planking by the tree

Squats are a wonderful exercise to help build total body strength with a focus on the lower body (legs). The wall squat (also called the wall sit) is often thought of as a beginner exercise, but you can perform variations on this very useful exercise to adapt it to all levels of fitness. For all of the exercises in this challenge the goal is to complete each day’s workout but you need to take into account your personal level of fitness. If you need to perform the planks as six 10 second periods, that’s ok. If you need to break up the wall squats into 4 thirty-second intervals that’s ok too. The key is that you have taken the first step to give the challenge a try!!
