If you’re working a 9-5 job, you’ll see pain in various parts of your body. Your knees are one of them. This occurs because you’re sitting in a chair all day. Your knees get used to staying in a 90 degree position for 8 hours per day.
So what do you do about this pain? Your best option is to perform mobility drills for you knees!
A mobility drill are deliberate movements through a defined pathway done repetitively. Most of the time, there is no resistance involved in mobility drills. They differ from stretching because mobility drills involves expanding your range of motion through movement, while stretches are usually static. Mobility drills are usually targeting joints rather then muscles.
Here’s a great mobility drill you can do for your knees:
Perform this mobility drill before going to work, before sitting down at work, after work, and when you get home from work. The more you perform this drill, the looser your knees will get, and the faster the pain will go away.
