Knee pain can plague your workouts. Whether you are a runner, weightlifter, or athlete, there’s a strong chance that you have dealt with some achey knees at some point. It is a very common issue and it’s also very avoidable.
A lot of times people have limited mobility, which causes excess stress on the knees. Try these simple mobility exercises to work on reducing your knee pain.
1. Couch Stretch
Try this couch stretch for 1-2 minutes on each side and try to work your torso to be more vertical without hyper-extending your low back.
2. Knee Gapping
This knee gapping technique can help to take pressure off your joint.
3. Contract Relax Hamstring Stretch
This is a twist on a typical hamstring stretch. Drive the leg into the doorway or rig for 5 seconds, then relax for 5 seconds. Repeat this about 5 times and try to inch closer to the wall each time.
