Quad Workout

I’ve always known that my quads were very weak and about 6 months ago I began really focusing on strengthening my quads.  In spite of my advanced age (58) I knew I could do it if I set my mind to it. This wall sit may look easy but it’s a killer!  I encourage you to try it and see for yourself.  Please leave your comments below!  I’d love to hear how you do with it.  Aside from the quads, this also works the lower abdominals, inner thighs and low back.







I highly recommend this very easy to follow book to help you reach your fitness goals with minimal time investment. You can work out at home in as little as 3 minutes and achieve phenomenal results!

      Hi Mary Helen, Yes, I first encountered this quad strengthener in the fitness test for P90X and as I said I was horrified to find I could only hold it for maybe 10 seconds! This was a huge wakeup call for me. I vowed to overcome this weakness. I have overcame it and was well past 50 at the time! It’s never too late people to focus on your dreams. Changing our daily habits changes our reality. Miracles happen! Mary Helen, I’m also glad to hear that yoga has balanced your leg strength. Athletes who practice yoga, really develop an edge. I’m partial to yoga but I still pump iron, jump rope, run etc. :-) Peace to you too!
