Cycling for Knee Strength & Rehabilitation

I am doing 3 months knee rehabilitation before I get back into my special forces style weight vest training. That kind of training will reveal any weakness & for me it turned out to be knee’s. Not surprising when doing 3 heavy long marches each week So if you saw my prior post on it I found a bunch of knee rehab programs which I am doing every day.

Luckily I have found the best exercise of all is the stationary bike. Which brought to my attention a German sprint cyclist at the Olympics. This guy is getting in the news because of his bodybuilder level thigh development.

By incorporating weights & sprint training on a stationary bike the knees can be strengthened particularly by increasing development of the internal quadriceps which is often a cause of knee pain – when the quads are too weak in relation to the required load on the knees.
