Tibial Rotation – Knee Movement

To begin the exercise, rotate your ankle and shinbone out as far as you can while keeping this position kick the leg straight until your knee is fully straight, hold for a moment, then slowly return to starting position. Then rotate your shinbone and ankle all the way in, kick the knee straight, return to starting position and repeat.
  • FEEL: You will feel your quadriceps, the muscles on top of your thigh working with this exercise as well as calf muscles to perform the rotations.
  • COMPENSATION: Do not move the rest of your body, limit the motion to your knee and shin bone
