WALL SIT WITH LATERAL RAISES

Special Offer

1. Wall Sit With Lateral Raises
Stand about 18 inches away from a wall, feet hip-width apart, with a dumbbell in each hand. Lean back and lower yourself until your thighs are parallel to the ground. Raise the dumbbells out to your sides until they are shoulder height. Inhale, lower your arms, and repeat. Stay in the wall sit until you finish the set.

Make it Harder: Hold your arms up for more than a beat. When that feels easy, use heavier dumbbells.
