Video 411 | Pilates for Knee Stability (30 minutes) with Lauren Eirk
New This Month • 08-Mar-2023
This is a 30 minute pilates workout to strengthen and stabilize the knee joint. The exercises will focus on the importance of proper knee alignment and knee tracking as well as building strength in all the muscles that support the knees. These include exercises for the lower leg muscles, upper leg muscles, knee / hip flexors and extensors, and the core. It can be used as part of active recovery workout for those dealing with a knee issue, or those just wanting to preserve knee joint integrity.
The mini ball will add resistance and support to many hip and lower leg exercises. The ring will add lateral forces across the hip and spine. The better we can move the surrounding joints, the less we stress the knee. Since the knee is not designed to rotate or laterally flex, this is vital.
