Squat

The squat is an excellent exercise for improving leg strength, power and endurance. It transfers to balance control, jumping ability and daily activities, like stair climbing. Squats target the hip extensors (glutes and hamstrings), knee extensors (quads) and ankle plantar flexors (calves).

  1. From a balanced standing position, lower yourself towards the floor, keeping your weight over the insteps of your feet.
  2. Push straight down into the floor in order to return to a standing position.

Use squats in our pre-run exercise.
