"Squats are a great exercise for working your lower body, and whilst typically associated with strength training, can also be a great addition to cardio training," explains Barrecore trainer Amber Johnson.

While she used to spend 45 minutes running every morning, Victoria said she now focuses on lifting heavy weights five or six days a week.

"I've always been a bit scared of weights, but it turns out I love them," Victoria told Grazia. "I've even got those special gloves to wear! It's good to switch things up and keep your body guessing. I've got so much more muscle tone now."
