If you want an exercise challenge, that looks benign, but is really challenging, try wall squats!

This exercise is old school, and will burn your quad muscles like you were a newbe to exercise!  Try using a timer or a stop watch and find a wall.  For 1 minute, vary between leaning against a wall with your thigh being parallel with the floor and slightly above; changing position, every 20 seconds.

For a bigger challenge, do the wall squats with one leg at a time with the other leg out front (extended straight or slightly bent).  Switch legs every 20 seconds.

This exercise creates a burn in the muscles above your knee.  It is a great way to build those muscles that hold your knee cap in place, and create that strong, athletic curve in the quad muscles.

 A strong quad-muscle group can that help you to be a stronger skier, basketball player, tennis player or a variety of other sports.
