Hamstring Curl

Stand facing a wall with the front of your thighs pressed up against it. Pull your leg up as far as safely possible and bring your heel towards your back. Hold for 5-10 seconds and release. This is great for increasing the spectrum of your knee movement and strengthening the muscles around the knee. Try using ankle weights to increase the intensity.

Straight-Leg Raises

Sitting in a chair, place your foot onto another chair. Lift your leg a couple inches off the chair and hold while keeping your leg straight. Maintain this posture for a 5-10 seconds. Release the position slowly. Repeat several reps for each leg. You can increase the time spent holding the posture or try adding ankle weights for added intensity.
