I have to be honest, doing wall squat is wonderful! Simply because it works, well, maybe a little too effectively. (Giggle)
I like to do it for long periods of time and it can hurt! However, we all know that no pain, no gain. Cast your inhibitions aside, and try this workout!
Adjust yourself as necessary. You should make sure your knees are at a right angle.
You might know that the reason why this is repeated so many times is to prevent back injuries.
During the exercise itself, if you feel overwhelmed by the pain, do not continue. However, all exercise is supposed to cause some strain.
Too much pain is a sign that you are overdoing it. So stop, take a breather, and stretch. Remember, it's better to attempt shorter duration of exercise then overdoing and getting injured.
You must be confident that you have stronger leg muscles before trying this.
Instead of holding the position for just 30 seconds, take it one step further. Hold the position throughout the entire playback of your favourite song.
Trust me, if you can do it comfortably, you are either a volleyball player, or you are ready to do more strenuous exercises!
You will either love or hate this exercise. But when you see your lower limb strength improve, that's when you will profess love for this incredible exercise! :D
Let me know how you endured the ache!
