Knee Circles Exercise


Knee Circles Directions:

Step 1: Begin with your feet placed together. Your knees should be locked. Your hands should be on top of your knees (Figure 137).

Step 2: You will bend your knees and gently circle each in a clockwise circle. (Figures 138,139,140).

Step 3: The circle will end by returning the knees into the beginning locked position (Figure 137).

Step 4: You may repeat the knee circles for six to ten complete circles.

Step 5: Now, you will bend your knees and gently circle each in a counterclockwise circle, ending in a locked position.

Step 6: You may repeat the (counterclockwise) knee circles for six to ten times.

Key Points:

* you shouldn’t force the knee into a locked position, rather gently allow them to lock
* breathe naturally
* you shouldn’t exceed the knees normal range of motion
