Single leg isometric wall squat

The isometric squat is an excellent exercise for toning the entire lower body. Muscles involved are: the gluteus maximus, responsible for hip movement, the quadriceps and hamstrings that work together to flex and extend the legs. Isometrics is a technique based on exerting tension on muscles without any movement.


  • Required Material: A smooth wall, anti-slip surface to prevent slipping and a stopwatch.
  • Procedure: The test consists of holding the isometric squat position with one leg without separating the back from the wall for as long as possible.
