Reduce your ACL injury risk

Knee valgus (inner knee collapse) is a sign often seen in athletes who partake in activities that demand running, jumping or sudden directional changes.

While ACL injuries are often multi factorial, the knee valgus sign usually indicates weakness of the hip external rotators and abductors, which predispose the athlete to ACL injuries.

Reduce your ACL injury risk with these exercises to strengthen the muscles of the hip:

 1. Fire hydrant

 2. Single-leg squat

 3. Step down 

 4. Double-leg drop jump 

 5. Squat jumps 

 6. Jump + Land plyo

 7. Split squat hops

 8. Single-leg jump + land
