Suffering from a weak knee? Winter is here and we’re sure those joints are aching. Walking up and down, moving about and climbing can make your knees weak. Other than eating healthy, its also better to start out with easy workouts that will help keep those joints from creaking. Here are 3 simple exercises you can try out at home to get relief from knee pains.
Lay on your back and lift one leg straight up and keep the other leg touching to the floor. Keep it in the air as long as you can. If you can manage, grab behind the lifted thigh and pull it towards your stomach. Repeat this with the other leg as well. Do 5 reps per side and hold the leg in the air for at least 10 seconds.
Half Squat Side Lunge
Standing with your feet apart, sink to one side in a lunge. Hold your other leg straight. Try to face the inside of your outstretched leg towards your body. Keep your foot flat on the ground as much as possible to get the maximum stretch. Switch and repeat with the other leg. Do 10 reps each and hold the position for 10 seconds.
Sit on the floor or chair with both your legs bent and flat on the floor and make your back stiff and straight. Bend one knee till it feels stretched but not too painful. Hold the position for 5 seconds and then straighten it out as far as you can. Repeat this for 10 reps on each leg and hold the stretch for at least 5 seconds each.
