Squat-hold

5. Legs: Squat hold
2 x 30 seconds, 15 seconds rest between sets

From a standing position with feet hip-width apart, bend your knees and lean slightly forward. Hold as low as you can for a full 30 seconds. Ensure your feet and knees keep facing straight ahead as it's easy to let them fall in together.

Why it works: This is a great leg exercise that works the major leg muscles in a low-impact activity.
