Did you know you can move your way to healthier knees? That’s right. You’ve likely heard me say it before: movement is medicine. Exercise is by far the best stimulant for building up this joint to be functional and strong. One of the simplest ways to achieve this is to apply different lunge variations to your workout routine.

What’s so special about the lunge you ask?

This movement is so powerful due to the demands it places on the localized tissues of the knee in a split-stance position. It’s also incredibly accessible being a movement you can do virtually anywhere without specialized equipment. By mastering unilateral exercises like the ones found below, you’ll go far beyond strengthening this joint by also developing balance, proprioception, mobility, and more. This will result in knees that are not only pain-free but ready to tackle anything you throw at them on the sports field or at your workplace.

You’ll be kicking yourself that you didn’t try this routine sooner!
