IMPROVE KNEE STABILITY

IMPROVE KNEE STABILITY

The hamstrings ( Back of the thighs) and vastus medialis (VMO) are Two muscles that are critical to knee stability

A chain is only as strong as its weakest link!

Determining and correcting weaknesses is the most efficient want to achieve constant succes and stay injury Free.The most important knee stabilizer, the VMO, is predominantly engaged below 90-degree knee flexion-like in a squat-and in the top 15 degrees of the knee Extension-like in a step up.

As many athletes only do half squats, or no squats at all, their VMO is often to weak (knee valgus) this in combination with a lot of sitting is a bigger risk to knee injury and energy leaks

Solution:

Do squats with elevated heels. Push your knees forward,drop down until the Back of your thighs should cover the calf in the lowest position.

Start with focus on good performance and then go fore more load on the bar.
