As a basketball coach and a strength coach the most common injuries are knee, ankle, and shoulders. I have covered preventative maintenance exercises for the ankle and shoulders and can be found by clicking the links: scottthom.com/2009/05/12/prehab-exercises-for-injury-free-shoulders/ scottthom.com/2009/05/18/prehab-exercises-for-injury-free-ankles/ scottthom.com/2009/10/18/best-ankle-strengthening-drill-to-prevent-injury/ scottthom.com/2009/09/06/shoulder-prehab-preventative-maintenance-2/. I thought it was time I did one for the knee, these 3 exercises should be done on a daily basis to strengthen the VM which will give the knee more stability. Thanks for stopping by, Create a great day!!!! -Coach T

Knee Prehab:
MB Leg Extensions (tempo= 2,1,2) 3×10
