I generally don’t enjoy doing lower body weight work. However I do realize it is an important part of a well rounded fitness plan and in my case beneficial to prevent injury to my twice repaired right knee.  One of the best ways to help shaky knees is to build up the muscles that support the joint.

I have only recently started squatting again the past couple weeks.  I abandoned them when my right knee was flaring up.

So today was leg day, which starte doff with squats.  I can’t do heavy weight but I do try to use decent form when doing reps, getting as low as I can while keeping my core tight and engaged while pressing through my heels.

Jeremy, whom loves to watch exercise more than perform it, had been bugging me to video my squats so I brought my Iphone to the gym.

Here is the end result.
