In this video, I wanted to go through the best knee pain exercises.

I am going to get Alix to demonstrate them.
#1 – Standing Hip Flexor Stretch
Standing Hip Flexor Stretch
Take a big step forward, flat in the front foot. Front knees are bent. Tighten up that abdominal area and tighten up the glutes. Bring the hips forward. We are looking at a light stretch in the front of the thigh and in the hip. Hold this for 20 seconds. We are looking for a light stretch and then you are going to alternate back and forth doing two repetitions on each side.
#2 – Wall Plank with Leg Kicks
Wall Plank with Leg Kicks
Your hands are against the wall, touch below shoulder height. You are going to go on to your forearms. You are tight in the abdominal area and your body is in a straight line. Now, add leg kicks and alternate back and forth. We are working on stability in the hip which helps with knee pain. We are also working on the glutes and the hamstrings. The plank works out your core which also helps address knee pain.
When it comes to sets and reps, you will do a total of 10 repetitions, five on each side, alternating back and forth. As you saw, Alix did a nice controlled movement when it comes to bringing that leg back.
So, there you go! Give those two exercises a go when it relates to the best knee pain exercises.
