Diamond squats

I love, love, love this move for strengthening the glutes, inner thigh muscles, calves, and (of course) the pelvic floor.

Start by standing with your hips and legs rotated outward. Your heels will be together and your toes will be pointing out. Come up onto the balls of your feet and try to keep your heels together. Your calves will be working hard!!! Keep your body upright (don’t lean forward) as you do a mini-squat. Your legs will form a diamond (see picture). As you straighten your legs and come back up, be sure to zip up and breathe out. This helps protect your pelvic floor. Do 15-20 slow and controlled repetitions, and you’ll feel the burn!
