Increase the angle of your body to the wall to create a greater challenge, says Tom Holland, M.S., C.S.C.S., author of Beat the Gym.
How to do it: Stand with your right side to the wall, approximately two feet out from the wall with feet together; bend your right arm and place your forearm on the wall for support. Keep your body straight (do not allow your hips to sag towards the wall). Bring your left leg slightly in front of your right foot and slowly bring it out to the side, pause and return to starting position. Repeat 15 times and switch sides. Add ankle weight for more resistance.
