An excellent exercise to help prepare for long distance running events – and all sports that involve running. This exercise specifically targets the muscles at the front of the knee. May also be used in the later stages of recovery from knee surgery.
This exercise can be used as a progression from the single leg dip. To perform this exercise, stand on one leg with your hands on your hips – you may find it comfortable to have your foot slightly turned out. Bend your standing leg, while reaching with the opposite foot towards the floor. Throughout this exercise try to maintain level hips. This exercise can be progressed by performing it on a decline.
