1. Front Thigh Exercise: Wall Squat
To begin, you rest your back against a flat wall and place your feet shoulder-distance apart with your feet pointing away from each other. Lean against the wall and balance your weight between your feet. Then, as you inhale, lower your body into a squatting pose as you slide down the wall. As you exhale, return to the starting position. Keep your back pressing against the wall and repeat one set of 15 to 20 reps, pausing between each set.
2. Front Thigh Exercise: Using Dumbbell Squats While Standing
To begin, you need to have a set of dumbbells for this exercise. Hold them in your hands and let your arms hang. Feet should be shoulder distance apart with your toes pointed away from the midline. Inhale and squat, while keeping your heels on the ground. Keep your head and chest facing forward. Repeat as needed, increasing the weight as you progress over a few weeks.
3. Front Thigh Exercise: Lunges
In this exercise, you stand with feet about shoulder distance apart. Hold a barbell on your shoulders. As you inhale, step one leg forward so your back knee touches the ground. Then lift your back knee and step back to standing as you exhale. Repeat on each side. However, if you have knee problems, speak with your health care provider.….READ MORE ON THE NEXT PAGE
