Summer Sessions at PureGym: Wall-Sit Challenge


What is the Wall-Sit Challenge?

The Wall-Sit Challenge is as simple as sitting down. Well, sort of. Simply adopt the wall-sit position as described below and see how long you can hold it for.

Keep a record of your time and re-take the challenge every month and make it your goal to set a new personal best month on month. To make the challenge more challenging try holding a weighted plate or dumbbells above your head.


How to perform the wall-sit

Stand up straight with your back against a wall and feet shoulder-width apart. Keeping your back against the wall, walk your feet forwards until your knees are bent ninety degrees and directly above your ankles, and your thighs are parallel to the floor. If it looks like you're sat on an invisible chair, you're doing it right. Hold this position and keep your core tight.
