But how about toning your legs fast in just 5 minutes? What if you are able to look fitter by just spending 5 minutes of your time 3 times a week?
Yes, if you can intensely engage your muscles, very short workouts can give you the best results. Let us now know about the wall sit workout.

How To Do: Simply do a basic warm up. Stretch a bit and get the blood flowing. Once you are ready for the workout, simply jog for a minute on the spot. That will get your legs ready. Now simply bend a little and go to wall sit position.

Just imagine you are sitting in a chair. Bend a little and sit in the air like you sit in the chair. This applies pressure over your legs as your legs carry the weight of your upper body without the help of a chair.
