Knee ACL Ligament Injury Prevention: Ultimate Frisbee Training Part 12 – “ Split Squats”
Start with a nice tall posture and your inner core pulled in to keep your low back flat. Engage your back leg into extension by pushing the back forefoot into a solid bench or a chair supported against a wall. With your arms in the ready position bend the knee to 90 degrees by bringing the butt down. Keep your thigh strong by preventing the knee from buckling inwards. Keep your knee over the heel and don’t let it go over your toes. Do 3 sets of 10 on each side. Split squats will help you develop more strength in your and thighs and hips to keep your knee strong and protect you from ACL knee ligament injuries. It’s also great for post ACL knee surgery rehab!
