Wall seats are a low-tech, user-friendly way to tone your abs and legs.

One of the best exercises you can do for your legs and core is completely free, requires no equipment, and can be done while watching TV at home. Plus, there’s no movement, added load, or impact to the joints, making it perfect for beginners, seniors, and people with joint problems that prevent them from doing other forms of exercise.

Sitting on the wall is a fantastic calisthenics exercise and greatly underestimated in my book. I made great use of it during COVID, when all the gyms were closed and I was getting bored repeating bodyweight squats. It’s an isometric exercise, which means it’s based on holding a static position to induce tension in your muscles, in the same way you might hold a plank position to train your core.
