Move your body, day 6: Step down to step things up

This move is more therapeutic than muscle-building and can help stabilize the knee.
Move Your Body Challenge

DAY 6 OF 25

Step-downs

While squats are great for your glutes and quads, it's important to make sure your knees are also properly looked after.

Enter step-downs.

This move is more therapeutic than muscle-building and can help stabilize the knee. And because the hips, hamstrings, and quads work together to help your kneecaps bend properly, it's important to strengthen and work all these muscles to keep them strong and flexible. Which is exactly what this move does!

Duration: 5 sets of 20 reps (10 per side). If this is too intense, start off with a number of sets and reps that work best for you.

Instructions:

  1. Start by standing with one foot on a step, one foot off the ground.
  2. Slowly lower the unaffected leg down off the side of the step. Lightly touch your heel to the floor.
  3. Return to the original position.
  4. Repeat until number of reps are completed.
  5. Switch legs.

Tomorrow: Take it to the wall.

Yours in wellness,
