Plyos Are Knee Friendly

Shape (Malaysia) - - Get FIt -

Yes, you heard that right. “Ply­o­met­rics are one of the best ways to build the func­tional mus­cle strength around the joint, which helps sup­port it,” says

Dr. Metzl, who is also a Shape Brain Trust mem­ber. Caveat: Stick the land­ing. If your knees cave in­ward as you land a jump squat or a burpee, build your butt and quad strength. Dr. Metzl rec­om­mends do­ing sin­gle-leg squats with a chair be­hind you, tak­ing a seat for a split sec­ond and then stand­ing up.
