Protect your knees, Knee Posture, Knee Pain Prevention

Hi. I wanna take a minute and talk about some good knee posture. So, your knees should always be pointing forward. So, if we’re talking about your kneecaps, you want your knees…if your kneecaps are your headlights, you want them facing forward. So you don’t want them turned out and you don’t want them turned in. You want your head…if they’re your headlights, you want them shining the path right in front of you. Another common thing that I see happen is a lot of people stand with their knees hyper-extended. So, over-extending the knees means that you’re resting on your ligaments. You’re wearing out your knees. That’s gonna lead to knee replacements, that’s just too much stress on the joints. So, you wanna stand with your knees soft, in a slightly, not totally extended position, but in a slightly flexed position. That’s gonna make your quads work and the muscles support the joints.

All right, good luck.
