Strengthening the lower body is a great way to build endurance and overall strength. The Wall Squat is a great way to accomplish this!

The Weighted Wall Squat with Frontal Raise intensifies the workout through the addition of light weights. This simple addition helps tone and shape muscle while keeping the rest of the body engaged.
