#Monday Move With Anya Lahiri: 3

The Squat with Leg Lift

The Squat with Leg Lift

This week's #MondayMove is, 'an all round butt and legs blaster that targets the butt, the quads, the hamstrings and the inner and outer thighs,' explains Anya Lahiri, trainer at Barry's Bootcamp London.

'Squats are also a runner's best buddy and will help with leg power, knee stability and help to prevent common running injuries such as runner's knee and iliotibial band syndrome' she adds.



Sit back into an imaginary chair keeping your chest lifted and your weight in the heels

Aim to get your thighs parallel to the floor, or even further if you are more advanced, make sure your knees never go over your toes!

As you come back to standing raise your right leg out to the side, flex your heel away from you and keep your leg straight

Lower the leg and return to the squat

REPEAT for 30 secs on the left side and 30 secs on the right side
