    it's kind of hard to explain, but you basically sit back like you're sitting on the toilet, hold for about a second, then stand up.

    an amazing leg exercise that i use a lot to keep in shape for track is a wall sit. you find a nice wall, and lean against it while in a squat position. it's sort of like the sumo, but it's for a longer period of time. try holding it for a minute and doing that 2 times per day. it works WONDERS! *but make sure that you have your legs at a 90 degree angle, otherwise the workout will be much less.

    something else that helps is running uphill. but after you do that, always walk down, because running downhill is bad for your knees.
