With 2022 well and truly in full swing, we kneed to be taking care of our bodies (see what we did there?). Whether you are back playing sports, training at your local gym or simply going on a daily walk — the last thing we want is you suffering from a knee injury. Let’s look at some simple exercises that can help strengthen your knees and be combined for an effective workout any day of the week!

Squats

Squats are a multipurpose, knee strengthening exercise that target not only your glutes, but quads and hamstrings too!

Lunges

Lunges, like squats, strengthen your quads, hamstrings and glutes. There are many variations but for knee strengthening we recommend a front lunge!

Box jumps

Now these aren’t as scary as they seem! Box jumps are a great plyometric exercise that target your quads, glutes, hamstrings and calves. They are especially great for sport players as they simulate a high impact movement.

If jumping is not for you (or if you have been recommended to avoid it), try stepping up instead!
