EVEN Kate’s knees look perfect with none of the unsightly sagging many of us suffer around the knee joint.

This is due to a strong popliteus, the often-overlooked triangular-shaped muscle found at the back of the knee, just below the joint, which is responsibl­e for unlocking the knee when we walk.

To target the knee, Kat Sterbova suggests ‘step-downs’.

‘Start on a step and step down with one leg only, not both, so one stays on the top of the platform and it’s the other one moving up and down,’ she explains.

‘This really isolates the knee and the popliteus muscle. It’s highly effective for someone who runs a lot.’

Try 25 of these on one leg, then repeat on the other.
