Strength Training Wall Squats

January 9, 2012

Wall Squats

 

Exercise might be the last thing you think you’re capable of with osteoarthritis, however it is one of the most beneficial treatment options for knee pain relief. Exercise will increase your joint’s range of motion and improve blood-flow, while promoting weight loss.

A functional exercise such as a wall squat provides a controlled movement of the joint.  This allows the knee to be isolated while providing adequate support. A wall squat is performed by placing your back against a wall, bending your knees 30°, sliding down the wall, then returning to a vertical position. Place your hands on the wall for balance and remember slow controlled movements are key. Keep your feet and legs parallel.  Try to avoid  letting your knees extend past your toes.

Wall squats should be repeated 5-10 times, allowing for adequate rest between sets.

    Nice site. I’ve continually found that the squat to be the sole best exercise used for both muscle building and also fat loss. It truly is the single best compound exercise that works all the major muscle groups.
