Wall Squat - Squat And Shout!

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!

Steps To Doing It Properly

  • Stand against a wall. Take one to two steps forward.

  • Go into a squatting position.

Adjust yourself as necessary. You should make sure your knees are at a right angle.

  • Hold this position for 30 seconds.

Things You Need To Avoid To Prevent Injuries

  • Keep your back straight.

You might know that the reason why this is repeated so many times is to prevent back injuries.

  • Avoid overdoing it.

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.

How Can You Make It Tougher?

  • Hold the position for a longer period of time.

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!

Final Words From Azri

I love this workout cause they are extremely effective. My personal best was being able to hold the position for half of an episode of Golden Girls (love the show) which is about 15 minutes?

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
