    Redline Thank you so much! I will give a try and see if it works. I have already been doing hamstring stretch (on my own or the workout) quite often.

    For exercises 2 and 3, the wall can be used for support, to help you find a safe range of motion. Healthy people who only want to strengthen their knees can probably do without. Injured people who are going through rehab should certainly use it.

    For the raised leg swings, a lot probably depends on the type of chair you sit on, but sitting closer to the edge is no problem if you keep your back (at least relatively) straight.

    For the hamstring stretch: extend your leg, point your toes upwards as far as possible, then start leaning forward. You should definitely feel it.

    Does that help?

    How about the tilts, and how is it related to a wall?

    For the raised leg swing, it's very hard to keep the leg straight if I sit that much back on the chair. That way the seat would not allow me to keep it straight AND drop the leg that much low, unless I move my butt close to the edge of the chair. How should I do it?

    I don't understand the hamstring stretch because I can't stretch my hamstring at all if I sit like that.

    Thank you for responding. Is it supposed to be done against a wall?

    kandy the leg is kept as straight as possible the whole time.

    the raised leg swing you would keep one leg up at a time, and bring it up and down, not letting it touch the ground until your done with the reps.
    Thanks! Are you supposed to keep your leg straight for the whole time, or can you bend your knees?

    How to do the "Knee Workout"?

    I am confused about most of the moves in this Knee Workout:

    How do you do each of them except the first one, the leg raises, the last one? Thanks!
Working...
