Wall Sits

Strength Training Without Weights

This lower body exercise can also be done anywhere at any time. Find a wall and you’re golden. You’ll primarily be working your quads as well as your hamstrings, glutes, abs and hips. Stand about 2 feet in front of a wall with your back facing it. Squat down into the squat position with your legs at a 90 degree angle, and rest your back against the wall. Hold this position for as long as you can while flexing your abs. To add intensity, grab a few books and place them on your lap.

This is great! However, most women can't do more than one or two chin-ups or pull-ups... I can't do them period, which is why having a machine to assist you is nice.
