Plyos Are Knee Friendly
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.
