The wall squat is a great exercise to strengthen the legs and buttocks and is often used as training for skiers and power-lifters. This is a brilliant exercise to do on the go, few spare minutes in a lift or when watching TV, especially if you fancy a stretch out during the ad breaks.

Put your quadriceps strength/ endurance to the test and hold a static (isometric) squat against a wall for 5 minutes. To perform a wall squat you need to slide down the wall and ‘sit’ with your knees bent at a 90 degree angle.

I started of struggling with 1:30, but managed to add 30 seconds on each day... now I'm up to 5 mins. It is possible. Rather than distracting myself I try and focus on each muscle during the time. I'm working towards the 10 minute one now, and I'm sure you'll be there soon too

Haha I definitely try to distract myself to not think about the pain and my legs shaking :D Wow 10mins! Good luck with that! It'll be a long while before I get there but I'm slowly working on building my leg strength all together :)

You could always put something in betwee you and the wall if you only have easy access to rough walls.  A towel, or a mat of some sort, perhaps?  It doesn't matter otherwise-heck, it doesn't even need to be a wall, a...
