Effective exercise for slender legs: “chair” against the wall
Especially for those who do not have enough money or time to go to the gym, we have prepared “Stool”. Static exercise helps to work and feel the muscles of the legs, front of the thigh, buttocks, back of the thigh, back and abdominal muscles. No more excuses: you just need a minute at home, in the park, or even in the office.
Exercise “Chair against the wall”: why
The exercise pumps the muscles of the lower back and rectus abdominis muscles, but is mainly aimed at working out the muscles of the legs, namely:
- the front of the thigh;
- gluteus maximus muscle;
- calf muscles.
Many athletes focus on training their glutes to improve their shape and appearance. But in order to pump the buttocks, you need to have strong legs. Increasing volumes requires working with large weights. Classic squats need to be done with a minimum of 10 kilograms to see progress. Weak legs cannot withstand such a load: you need to focus on strengthening them. The “chair” is perfect for this purpose: in the process of execution, the legs support the weight of the whole body. If you do the Stool regularly, you can improve the strength of the front and back of the thigh, increase the endurance of the body, strengthen the knee joints, develop concentration and body balance.
How much time to do
This is one of the most comfortable exercises you can do anywhere: at home, at work, at a party, at the gym. You can not limit yourself in time: perform from one to five minutes, constantly increasing the duration of the process. Try to improve your performance by even five seconds. For beginners, it is optimal to perform the exercise five times a week for four sets of 30 seconds or more.

To load the buttocks and legs, even more, you can pick up dumbbells or improvised means: bottles, books, a heavy bag, or do the exercise on one leg.
