Your knees carry you through your life. They help to support your weight with every step you take. In this class, Adrian takes you through a range of lower body exercises to increase strength, stability, and range of motion. These exercises can help prevent injuries and osteoarthritis in and around the knee.
Prepare to work on your lower legs, quads, and glutes. Begin by rolling out your calves, releasing tightness and improving circulation, before moving into a half kneeling hip stretch to open up your hip flexors and activate your glutes. Move into strength work with calf and tibialis raises, a variation of monster walks, and Peterson Step Ups. These exercises will prepare you for a functional and dynamic movement, the knee drive.
Take this opportunity to explore how your knees are supported by your entire lower body. As Adrian says, “longevity is key”, which is why he practices these same moves daily. Build quality and confidence in your movements by adding this class to your weekly routine.
Suggested Equipment: Small ball, looped resistance band, yoga block.
