Knee Ligament Sprain Injuries – Reverse Lunge Woodchops

Hold onto a ten pound dumbbell with your hands on both ends and engage your inner core stability muscles below your belly button.

Then lunge backwards with your right leg performing a wood chopping motion with the upper body and arms turning only your torso. Push back up with the right foot to the start position. Repeat this for 10 repetitions doing 3 sets for each side.

This exercise is excellent for strengthening your knee and developing better balance and proprioception and more optimal neuromuscular activation patterns after a knee ligament sprain injury.​

If you have any problems doing this exercise, please contact one of our Physiotherapists at either of our locations in North Burnaby on Hastings Street or in Vancouver on Cambie Street.
