Any body know of any knee strengthening exercises???
Last year at the beginning of the season I tore my meniscus in my knee and It pretty much prevented me from improving last season at all. I was wondering if anybody knows of any knee stretches or exercises I could do before the season starts. Thought maybe I could loosen it up a little...
Bulgarian Split Squats
That right thurr is all you need, assuming your flexibility is solid.
make sure you work every muscle in your thigh..if your quads get stronger problems start to occur because it will pull on your tib fib in a much different manner..and increase the likely hood of an acl injuries.. so keep it all even.
i did the same thing and for physical therapy i pretty much rode a bike or ran on the olyptical (cause running is bad for joints, but if you are going to run do it on a track, no cement) and a lot of squats and balance exercises
you should ask your fysiotherapist for specific exercises, but if you're looking for fun all-round excercises that are low impact, give slacklining a try, it might look and feel weird at first but it can improve muscle tone in your legs enormously+ it'll improve your overall balance as well, especially on rails !
get a balance board and do squats and hold them for a minute or so. helps a ton for rails and strengthens all the leg muscles if done right. i do it for my asgood schlatters and it seems to help. and get good and learn tricks for more fun.
