Strengthen Your Weak Knee With Step Ups

I have strengthened my weaker left knee (and the tendons, ligaments, etc. around it) by doing exercises like step ups.

Step ups force you to balance and work one leg at a time with no help (compensating) from the other leg. While playing football in college, my left knee had continually gotten weaker with each passing season. I didn't want surgery and opted to rehabilitate the knee with exercise.

Even today, one-legged exercises like step ups (on knee-high platform) are a big part of my exercise routine. Other one-legged exercises like lunges are great because one-legged exercises use the same pathways that it takes to run and they help improve your balance.

Using the right exercises can help prevent and/or rehabilitate injuries.
