Live Event | Knee Strengthening Workout (60 minutes) with Lauren Eirk
60 Minutes • 1h 9m
The knee joint, called a "hinge" joint, bends and straightens but can become stressed or injured with muscle weakness and compensation from nearby joints. In this workout, you will learn about the knee joint and practice some effective exercises to help keep your knee more stable.
We will use the stability ball to create some effective isometrics and joint support. The thigh band will be effective for hip strenghening to take pressure from the knees. The dumbbells are optional, but will be used to add resistance.
When knees do their job well, they can dissipate, transmit, and tolerate large forces generated from the core and feet to keep everything communicating and functioning optimally. All levels welcome!
