Wall Sit Challenge

Alexa Brown

For the wall sit challenge this week, make sure you grab a magazine, a book or your phone to help pass the time quickly.  By the end of the week, your goal is to be able to hold this wall sit position for 3 minutes.  Here's a quick description and some key points about your form.  To start, form a right angle against the wall just like you are sitting in a chair.  Make sure your knees stay in line with your ankles, your feet are hip width apart and your thighs are parallel to the floor.  To add intensity, use weights or add to the amount of time you stay seated.  As you complete the challenge on Friday, tag @hbgcommunity and use the hashtags #hbggirls and #hbgblog to share how long you were able to hold this challenging position!
