Muscle Groups
  • Legs
  • Quadriceps (front thigh) strength


The half wall slide performed with dumbbells is a great way to develop strength in the legs and glutes. The half wall slide emphasizes the quadriceps. It can be performed as part of a lower-body workout or to improve performance for sport. A sturdy wall and pair of dumbbells is all that is required.


  • Hold the dumbbells in your hands.
  • Lean against a wall with your feet placed 12 to 15 inches in front of you, and about hip-width apart.
  • With your entire back against the wall, slide down until your lower thighs are nearly parallel to the ground.
  • Carefully push back up to the start position.


  • Rounding the back
  • Buckling the knees inward
