Squat Lateral Raise

The Squat/Lateral Raise with band works the glutes, quads and inner thighs. Begin standing with your feet hip-width apart (or slightly wider), toes pointed slightly out. You can clasp your hands in front of you for balance or place them on your hips.

Bend your knees and lower your hips back and down until your thighs are parallel with the floor. Be sure to keep your back straight and chest up. Don't let your knees extend past your toes.

Press through your heels to stand and simultaneously lift your right leg up out to the side.

Return to the starting position. This completes one rep.
