Hi, I'm Alfonso, the angry trainer, Moretti. And today we are talking weight training exercises for strong knees. The main reason that we use a weight training exercise for our knees is simple. We want to eliminate our risk for injuries. Especially for those of us that are recreational athletes. Day to day life can create muscular imbalances in the knee. And through strength training and weight training we can bring those balances back to where they should be. This way you can play hard. The first exercise we are going to use to strengthen our knees are going to be weighted forward lunges. So you could grab any weight. I've got two kettlebells here, you can use two dumbbells. Heck you could even use two gallons of water as a weight. It doesn't really make a difference a weight is a weight. We are going to start with our feet together. We are going to take a step out. All the weight is going to be on the heel. Nothing is going to roll onto the toe. And then we are going to drive back and step back again. So take a big step out. And push back. Try to keep your core, your torso as rigid as possible and use all that front leg. Here breathe off and drive back. The second exercise I like to use for strengthening the area around the knee is weighted reverse lunges. Grab two weights. Step straight back. Press up through the heel. Squeeze that leg when you stand up. The reverse lunge is also going to help with your knee stability. And the tracking of the knee over the hip and the foot. What I like to do is take these two exercises and integrate them for a one two punch on knee stability and leg work. You're simply going to take a step forward. Step back. And then switch. So we are actually working both knees and both legs at the same time. Just make sure you use perfect form. Do not sacrifice your form for extra repetitions.
