We love this exercise because it works the large muscle groups in the leg; quads, glutes and hamstrings. The Superband squat is perfect for runners to help strengthen the legs, or for the person looking to incorporate a new move into their next workout.

If you can’t make it to the gym, try doing this exercise in the convenience of your own home. No Superband? No problem. Swap the band for bodyweight squats or grab some dumbbells for added resistance.

Start by placing both feet shoulder-width or slightly wider apart inside the superband. Then lift band even to shoulders (as shown in picture). Next, squat, making sure your knees don’t go over toes. Repeat for 8 reps 10x. For added resistance, extend arms into overhead press then continue squats.
