Know squat? 6 variations of the classic move to take your running up a level:

The squat is a simple, classic exercise that should be part of every runner's routine. That's because it builds functional strength that carries over to better running.

Strengthening these muscles also guards against injuries like runner's knee and iliotibial-band syndrome.
