To prevent knee injury, you want to strengthen and stretch your quads, calves, and hamstrings and strengthen the muscles around your knee while improving agility.
Try this Wall Sit exercise to strengthen your quads. Here's how you do it:
- Stand with your back against a wall, placing your feet about two feet out in front of you. Feet should be hip-distance apart.
- Bending your knees, slide your back down the wall until your knees are at 90-degree angles. Your knee joints should be over your ankle joints, so you may need to inch your feet farther from the wall to create proper alignment. Your thighs should remain parallel.
- Hold for thirty to sixty seconds, and then stand up. Repeat for a total of three reps.
- To make this move more challenging, alternate between lifting your left heel for a few seconds and then your right. This helps to target your calves.
