Here are 3 simple exercises to build stability and strength around the knee.
FRONT FOOT ELEVATED DEEP SPLIT SQUAT
These are also called “Knees Over Toes Split Squat.” This exercise is great for building strength in the END-RANGES of knee flexion. And at the same time, it’s great at loading and working on ankle mobility.
Your knees goes over your toes when doing most of your athletic movements like sprinting, jumping, cutting, and etc. So why not train and get stronger in those end-ranges.
DUMBBELL HEEL TAPS
Not only is this a great way to strengthen the quads but it also helps with building strong hips. That’s because you have to keep your pelvis level when tapping the heels on the ground. Your hips and ankles affect the stability of the knee.
This is a progression of the above 2 exercises. This exercise now adds a single leg balance component while addressing what was said above.
