ACL Injury Prevention Series

ACL Injury Prevention – Video #4

 

Hey guys, Dr. Shawn Rennick from Action Sports Clinic. Today we are looking at exercise number 4 of our ACL preventative injury series.

Now what we are going to do, this one is called a Glute Bridge. So we are going to do two versions. One is with a rubber band and one is without.

So the first one, we are just going to get Sofia to come up into a bridge position and as she does that she holds it for a count of 5 and then you can come back down.

Glute Bridge…

At times it might be helpful to extend a leg, so if she wants to extend a leg she is going to get a better recruitment of the left glute in that case and then extend this leg and get a better recruitment of the right leg.

With the rubber band, so what she is going to do here is she is going to put that around her knees. With this one, the beauty of this exercise is as she is down in this position here and then she comes up, what she is going to do is apply pressure with her knees against the rubber band which gives her really good glute contraction and this helps to make her stronger which will help to protect her knees.
