There are a million different reasons why people don't work out. It becomes especially challenging during the hustle and bustle of the holidays. When you find your time stretched to its absolute limit or you are traveling, finding time to fit in exercise may be harder than ever. But just because you can't carve out time to go to the gym doesn't mean that you can't exercise. Here is a great move that needs no equipment and can be performed anywhere, anytime to activate and firm core muscles as well as hips and glutes.

The "Invisible Chair" done anywhere!

wall sit exercise for women

1.  Put your back against a wall and your hands clasped together in front of your chest or with your palms resting on your knees.

2.  Walk your feet forward while pressing the entire back against the wall until you have come to a 90-degree angle with your knees.  From the side, it seems that you are sitting in an “invisible chair”. 

3.  Continue to take deep breaths and hold the position for 30 seconds, then move up to 60 seconds or perhaps even 90 seconds! 

That's all there is to it! This exercise is a simple, easy and effective way to work your core and lower body so grab a wall and relax in your Invisible Chair!
