Performance Workout #2 – Knee Drive
Today we move down your body to focus on your knees. Our second performance workout involves six exercises to improve the stability and elasticity of your knee joint.
As a reminder, for this part of the program don’t do more than one performance workout per day, and be sure to rotate through the four primary performance workouts so that you’re hitting all the key areas of your body. This will ensure maximized performance.
If you’re pressed for time, you’ll benefit most by adding these workouts and slightly shortening your run time for the day.
Quality always wins! So don’t skimp… and don’t rush through your reps and sets. Time under tension will give you the results you’re looking for.Section divider
