Agree with Coach Jen. As a person with knee injuries of the past, you really should speak with your doctor to refer you to a PT to give you exercises that at minimum, are a jumping off point.

If you've had issues with your knee in the past, your best bet is to talk to your doctor about what kind of exercise program would be right for you. They might be able to refer you to see a physical therapist who can design a set of exercises specific to your needs to correct the imbalances and prevent future injury.

What strength exercises do you do to prevent injury from recurring, especially of the knee? I know squats and lunges are supposed to help but I find I end up with an imbalance where my hamstrings are stronger than my quads and end up twisting the tendons. Has anyone been successful in lifting with patellar tendonitis? I'd like to get back into a strength routine without causing injury again. Thanks!
