Modified Front Lunge Squat for Healthier & Stronger Knees

For healthier knees, it's often helpful to do lunge squats where you take the front knee out beyond the plane of the same-side foot. The idea is to increase end-range strength, which promotes healthy blood circulation through the ligaments in and around the knees.

Aim to keep the core strong and upright, and to go low enough to feel a good stretch through the hip flexors of the back-side leg. Any amount of amplitude can be helpful, so just go as low as you comfortably can, as even a few inches can be beneficial.
