Isolation challenge 6 - The Wall Sit!

When it comes to a simple fitness challenge, you can’t get much simpler than this. You simply have to sit down! 😁

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to hold a wall sit to failure!

How long can you last?


  • Make sure your back is flat against the wall.

  • Set your feet about shoulder-width apart and then about 2 ft out from the wall.

  • Slide your back down the wall, bending your legs until they’re in a 90 degree angle—or as close as you can get! Your knees should be directly above your ankles, but no further forward.

  • HOLD your position, while contracting your abs.

  • Stand slowly, while leaning against the wall, when done.

If you are uncomfortable or unable to hold a wall sit at a 90-degree angle, don’t slide as far down. Instead, go for a 45 or 30-degree angle between your thighs and torso. You can also reduce the time of your hold, and work your way up.

How long can you hold this for? Time yourself, wait ten minutes and then try to beat it. Maybe turn it in to a competition and involve your family? 😀
