Building a Better Knee – My Comments in Men’s Journal

Exercise should keep us healthy, but sometimes overuse and repetition can actually cause injury. For instance, climbing stairs is a great way to build your core muscle strength, but it can also put stress on your knees. Making sure to progress gradually and ensuring that your gluteals and hip muscles are strong enough, can help avoid injury to your knees.

I recently discussed knee overuse and injury for this Men’s Journal article, “How to Build a Better Knee.” While the article points out that evolution may not have provided us with the best knee design, the article offers some tips for strengthening to hopefully “get another couple of decades from your knees.”
