#30DaysToStrongerKnees Day 11: Single Leg Sit-to-Stand

Many of the issues that create knee pain originate from muscular imbalances, instability, and inactive muscles. Single leg work helps to correct all three of them.

For this exercise you are going to need a chair, bench, step, or plyo box. Start seated, feet hip distance apart, and about a foot away from whatever you are sitting on. Extend one leg and lift it off the ground. Then brace your core and squeeze your glutes together to stand up on one foot.

These are going to be extremely challenging but equally beneficial. Focus on slow and controlled form. I would make a goal of 3-5 sets of 5-8 reps on each leg.
