The Wall Squats and Hamstring workouts have really helped my knees. When I first started to take physical fitness seriously, I experienced some knee pain. I didn't know it at the time, but weak quadriceps and hamstrings can lead to knee pain when physically stressed.
After doing Wall Squats for several weeks, I noticed that my knee pain disappeared. I now workout without fear and increased confidence, and feel much stronger in my lower limbs.
