TARGETS: Ankles, hips, thoracic spine and shoulders (if using the overhead technique). Also a great way to develop core strength.

TECHNIQUE: To develop your squat, start with the bodyweight squat with your arms out in front. Once you have achieved a good depth you can progress this by either adding weight (eg kettlebell or dumbbell) or by transitioning to the overhead squat.

Key points to focus on:

• Hinge at the hips and sit into the position.

• Drive the knees out to open the hips and stabilise the position.

• Try to stay as tall as possible extending through the spine.
