Straight-Leg Raise

Straight-Leg Raise

Lie on your back with your knee straight. Bend your other knee so that you can put your foot flat on the bed. Contract your quad tightly before you raise your leg (see quad set). Slowly raise your involved knee, keeping the knee locked. Slowly lower the leg back to the starting position.

If you are unable to raise your leg without your knee bending, perform these with your brace locked in full extension.

Perform 3 sets of 15 repetitions each side.
