The wall sit is a great leg exercise that conditions your glutes, hamstrings, and quads, Montgomery says.

 

  • Stand with your back to a wall and your feet shoulder-width apart.

 

  • Push your hips, lower back, and shoulders into the wall. 

 

  • Slowly walk your feet out as your upper body sinks to the floor.

 

  • Bend your knees until your legs form a 90-degree angle, but make sure to keep your hips and lower back flat against the wall. Hold this position for up to 1 minute. 

 

“Your dog’s paws may be placed on your knees for added resistance, or sitting in front of you,” says Montgomery.
