    Stand with your back against the wall and slid down until your legs are bent 90 degrees at the waist. Hold this position for at least a minute and repeat three times. For more challenge do this same exercise but lift one foot up until that leg is straight out.

    Quad sets and leg stretching exercises (especially stretching the hamstrings and calf muscles).

    Plyos are seriously the single most time saving, but super effective things I do. I ride and run for endurance, but I plyo for strength.

    If you have a road bike, perhaps a cycle trainer?

    Scooby would add. Put a stool under you so there is no danger of going too low and over extending. Put a skateboard or similar between you and the wall to ease traveling up and down while leaving you feet and knees out in front of you. Add hand weights as you build strength over time. Videos are available at the link I posted above.
