Hey, I hope you had a great Father’s Day weekend.
Mine was awesome! I had a wonderful time camping with the family. Camping is one of my favorite things to do. It was great to be outside and spend time with my family.
For today, I have an article and video for you on a few steps to help relieve knee pain. Feel free to share this with your family, friends and colleagues who are suffering from knee pain.
In today’s video, I wanted to talk about how to squat without knee pain.

I had Donnalee demonstrate.
- Place your feet a little wider apart: Often people have their toes point straight ahead or have their feet too close together, which causes a lot of stress on the knees.
- Squat with the toes out: This will overcome the tightness or lack of mobility that can be felt in the hip area.
- Put your weight on the mid foot or heel: Standing on your toes while squatting puts more stress on the knees. Balance your weight across your mid foot or heel.
- Focus on your hamstrings and glutes: Focus more on the glutes and hamstrings exercise rather than the quad exercise.
- Keep your shins vertical: This puts less stress on the knee joints and allows you to focus on the glutes and hamstrings.
- Squat down until your hips are below your knees: This will enable you to allow your hamstrings and glutes to help you get out of that bottom position.
Give those tips a go to squat without knee pain.
