Who needs to trek to the gym when you can get your workout done inside with no equipment required? The wall sit, a move that targets the thighs, specifically the quads, may look simple but is a total burner. Here's how to get it done:

1. Stand with your back flat against the wall. Place your feet, hips-width distance, about two feet in front of you.

2. Bending the knees, slide back down the wall until your thigh and calf form a perfect 90-degree angle. Hold this position for as long as possible, starting at 30-second intervals, and working your way up to 1- to 2-minute holds. Equal rest in between three suggested sets.
