Knee Strengthening – Simple Quadriceps With Theraband Tubing Exercise

Here is a simple exercise to help strengthen the knee at home. Using theraband, you can extend your leg and push into the band. This helps alleviate knee pain and get it stronger!

Here’s a knee post-surgery. We’re going to do a little exercise to progress and work on strengthening the quad into full straightening. Kind of like a leg press or squat motion, but not loaded. We have some theraband around the foot, lying down with the back supported, and working on pushing the leg straight, trying to fully straighten the knee, and keep the toes pulled up. This works on helping control the quadricep muscle through range, or strengthening your thigh muscle. As for repetitions, maybe 20-30. Take a break when you’re fatigued, so you can do three sets of 10-20 repetitions.
