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.
