Get ready to strengthen those quads!
Place your back back against a wall with your feet shoulder width apart and a little ways out from the wall. Then, keeping your back against the wall, lower your hips until your knees form right angles.
Primarily, wall sitting builds your isometric strength and endurance in glutes, calves and quadriceps. The muscles present at the front of your thighs are the quadriceps. One of these four quadricep muscles is the rectus femoris, which helps to move your thigh and torso closer. Doing wall sits increases the strength and endurance of this muscle. The hamstring muscle present at the back of the knee work in rhythm with the quadriceps. Wall sits also strengthen the hamstring muscle. The adductor muscles present in the inner thigh can also be strengthened with wall sits.
These can easily be done during the commercial break of your favorite TV show!
