Strong quads = strong/healthy knees… Again, strong quads = strong healthy knees… If you have knee weakness, or pain of almost any type, the key to being free from knee issues may be in strengthening your quadriceps muscles, which are the large muscles in the front of your thighs. Strengthening these muscles keeps your knees in alignment and keeps the knee joint space wide, which prevents bone-on-bone rubbing from occurring. This 20-minute knee circuit workout to improve quad strength is similar to what you would expect from a physical therapy program. Before performing this knee circuit workout, make sure you check with your doctor to make sure stronger quads is the solution.
