3. Seated bent-leg raises
Strengthens the quadriceps just above the knee and the ligaments surrounding the joint.
How to do them: While seated in a chair, straighten one leg in front of you but stop just short of locking the knee. Hold the elevated leg in this position for one minute, this will also involve and strengthen your hip flexors.
Now without moving your thigh, bend at the knee until your leg forms a 45 degree angle and hold this position for an additional 30 seconds. Relax and repeat with the opposite leg. Alternate until you have completed 4 repetitions for each leg.
