7 Best Knee Strengthening Exercises – Ask Doctor Jo

By | 11 July 2020

These knee strengthening exercises don’t require using a lot of weights. If you have knee pain, consider using knee compression sleeves to help increase circulation and reduce swelling & pain. Purchase the Titan Compression knee sleeves here: http://amzn.to/2pojTED (affiliate link)

Knee compression sleeves will also give the knees some compression during the exercises to help the healing process.

The first exercise to help strengthen the knee is a short arc quad (SAQ), this is a great way to get started without doing to much to the knee. It helps strengthen the quad muscles with extend or straighten the knee.

The next knee strengthening exercises are a bridging series including a regular bridge, bridging with a band, and bridging squeezing into a ball. These all are great for the hamstrings, glutes, and surrounding muscles of the knee and hips.

Then you will do a long arc quad (LAQ), this is like the SAQ, but it is a longer arch with works the quad muscles in a bigger range of motion.

The final two exercises for the knee are a squat and a squat with a band. Squats do a great job of strengthen all of the lower leg muscles including hamstrings, quads, glutes, hip flexors, and others.

  3. Jas Singh

    Both knees hurt when I squat, or walk up the stairs. When I run, it feels like their giving up on me. The knee sleeves help but they irritate my skin when I have them on for too long

  4. Parikshit Rathi

    I have got this knee injury while playing the day before . Should I start exercising now or wait for three four days. Swelling is gone already.

    Guys. lost a lot of weight does not need to be hard (I used to feel it did). I will give you some tips now. Look for a popular fat burn methods called Custokebon Secrets (do a search on google). Thanks to it I have lost lots of weight. I should not even be talking about it cause I don't want a bunch of other guys out there running exactly the same game but whatever. I am just in a excellent mood right now and so I will share the wealth haha.

    Guys, build muscle doesn't need to be hard (I used to think it did). I'll give you some advice right now. Look for a diet plan known as Custokebon Secrets. Seriously, that course has transformed my life. I probably should not even be mentioning it because I don't want a bunch of other folks out there running the same "game" but whatever, I am just in a good mood today so I'll share the wealth haha.

  12. Mavis Demas

    I read a lot of great reviews on the internet about how Episoketren System will help you increase your soccer technique. Has any one tried using this popular training program?

  13. Catalina Hale

    Does Custokebon Secrets really work? I see a lot of people keep on talking about Custokebon Secrets. But I'm uncertain if it is good enough to lost a ton of weight.

  14. Ιδομενεύς Καλιφόρνιος

    He's doing 5 reps but it seems like he can do 14. Put more weight on.Thants not training.

  15. Heath Stanley

    Does Custokebon Secrets really help to lost lots of fat? We have read numerous good stuff about this popular fat burn methods.

  16. Ian Horton-Plant

    Is this strength or speed/power training? I didn't see any heavy weight in this session. Strength is generally at around the 4-6 rep range which means heavy and not just an empty bar.

  17. Starla Mosley

    This still surprise me, just how many people have no idea about Custokebon Secrets, even though lots of people get good results because of it. Thanks to my cousin who told me about Custokebon Secrets, I have lost a ton of weight by using it without starving myself.

  18. Miranda Russo

    It's still amaze me just how lots of people do not know about Custokebon Secrets despite the fact that many people using it. Thanks to my personal buddy who told me about this. I've lost tons of fat.

  19. Brooke Horton

    What is Custokebon Secrets and how does it work? I hear many people lost their fat with this popular fat burn secrets.
