As athletes the knees are essential in performing lifts, doing cardiovascular work and performing a number of other important movements. When it comes right down to it, knee pain can completely derail your development. But whether you’re experiencing knee pain or you simply want to prevent the issue before it arises, here are some great methods of strengthening your knees.
STEP UP FOR STABILITY
The first plan of attack for trying to fix your knees is an extremely beneficial exercise. The step up with either a barbell on your back or dumbbells in your grasp can be a great remedy for knee pain. For one it helps to develop the muscles around your knee. It also is great for stability work. Performing the exercise with each leg means that the muscles in both limbs are getting one hundred percent of the work at all times.
