#1 – Bodyweight Squat

The key things that I am looking at are the feet are wide, toes are slightly out, and ideally I like it when the hips just pass the knees so that you will be working those hamstrings and glutes as you are coming down and back up. I would get you to do 5 to 10 repetitions.
#2 – Bodyweight Single Leg Deadlift
I will get Orsy to put one hand on something for support because I am not worried about balance. I want to work and focus in on the muscles. She is standing on one leg. She is slightly bent in the knee. She is bending at the waist, keeping the head, upper body and leg in a straight line and then coming back to standing and then she is going to do it again.

She is working the hamstrings and the glutes. Once again, she is going through 5 to 10 repetitions of this exercise on each side.
#3 – Bodyweight Full Body Extension
Orsy squats down and then she straightens all the way up.

And like I said, ideally I want the hip just to pass that knee joint so that we are strengthening that knee and that hip through a big range of motion.
One way to think about this exercise is you are doing the wave. You are squatting and then lifting your hands overhead like you are doing the wave. We are going through it for 5 to 10 repetitions.
#4 – Bodyweight Single Leg Squat
Just like the single leg deadlift, Orsy can put her hand on something because I am not worried about balance. I am getting her to squat down.
Bodyweight Single Leg Squat
I am looking at 45 degrees in the thigh and 45 degrees in the upper body and she is flat in the foot, bending at the ankle, bending at the knee and really working the quads, the hamstrings, and the glutes. And just like the other 3 bodyweight exercises she is going through 5 to 10 repetitions.
Well, there you go. Give the 4 Bodyweight Knee Saver Exercises a go and let me know how it goes.
