Brief Clip of Sled Work for Healthier Knees

Sled work. Doing at least as many going backward as forward. Using enough weight to make it mildly challenging while allowing for steady cadence. I do about 5 sets of 3 forward, 3 backward daily before doing mobility and strength work, and can vouch for how effective this is for knee health and lower extremity strength. It’s awesome for cardio conditioning as well.

Many thanks to @kneesovertoesgirl and @kneesovertoesguy and @mr1nf1n1ty at Instagram for the inspiration and guidance.

If you don’t have the space to do this at home, please know that many gyms are well set up to allow for sled work.
