Squats can improve your knee pain
Goblet squats are a great way to improve your squat pattern before loading it up with a barbell. If you are having trouble getting the depth you require before your knees collapse in or if you are having trouble maintaining your stability before your back starts rounding then this exercise is for you.
The goblet squat helps to improve knee and spine alignment through the movement without having to deal with large loads. The kettle bell out in front offers some assistance in recruiting the muscles you need for stability and proper knee alignment.
Standing holding the kettle bell in front of your chest with a hand on each side of the handle. Actively pull the handle apart while keeping your elbows facing down – this will help activate your lats and the muscles in your back. Slowly start to lower your body down with the aim of touching your elbows to the inside of the knee. You are aiming for the muscle just to the inside of the knee cap. At the bottom – stay active and pause for 1-2 secs and then standing up strong.
