Runners, You Need to Do These 4 Exercises That Prevent Knee Pain

Lateral

Many people neglect their side muscles, which can mean that the muscles surrounding your knee joint can be weakened. Incorporate lateral work into your routine so you help strengthen those muscles. Try doing alternating side lunges to strengthen all areas of your butt, hips, and thighs.

  • Start with your feet directly under your hips. Step your right foot wide to the side coming into a lunge with your left fingers touching your right foot. Your right knee shouldn’t go beyond your right toes. Keep your chest lifted and your weight in your heels.
  • Push into your right foot to return to standing, then lunge sideways to the left to complete one rep.
