Mini Squat with ball squeeze

Rehabbing from an injury and having trouble getting your quads to fire without having pain? Knees hurt going downstairs, at the bottom of a squat, and/or when kneeling? EMG studies show that hip adduction with squat exercises promoted a greater balance between the medial and lateral portions of the quadriceps femoris muscle. The strength of the medial portion (“VMO”- the teardrop-shaped muscled above the knee on the inside part of the thigh) is important to prevent or recover from many types of kneecap related pain!
