How to Do Wall Squats With Hands on Wall

The wall squats with hands on the wall should begin with good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.

If any pain is experienced, immediately stop the wall squats with your hands on the wall.
