This three-part mini-series, looks at modifications for training around knee pain.
Training Around Knee Pain
First up, we’re looking at the split squat. A great exercise, which can easily by modified to suit you.
Next up, we’re looking at the Sled Drag.
Whilst it may not look super-sexy, the humble Sled Drag is a fantastic exercise for building muscles around the knees and hips, without putting too much stress on them.
It’s also a great calorie buster, as it works very well for getting your heart rate elevated and that metabolism firing.
A win, win.
Lastly we show you the terminal knee extension (TKE).
The TKE is a great exercise for developing the thigh muscles, which support the knee joint during movements such as squats and lunges.
