Runner and Hiker Exercises to Strengthen the Knees

Exercises to Strengthen the Knees

More strengthening exercises will mean less visits to the Physical Therapist

As I am preparing to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, I am hiking at least 20 miles every weekend. On Sunday evening I am sore everywhere, so I protect my legs and knees during the week by performing strengthening exercises. Runners World has a great video that explains where 'knee pain' REALLY comes from and offers a few exercises to strengthen legs.
