Get that Active & Passive Terminal Knee Extension ASAP after you have your ACL surgery everyone!!!
❌ One of the most difficult positions to comfortably regain after ACL reconstruction is terminal knee extension ❌
Being able to thrive in full knee extension is a good indication of solid quad strength and restoration of knee extension range of motion
Here are 2️⃣ of my favorite ways to test and train your comfort level with this position
1️⃣ Elevated Bridge with hip flexion: this one challenges both the quads and glutes on the weight bearing side, with the goal being to keep the trunk completely straight as the opposite knee marches
2️⃣ Shoulders and Feet Elevated Hip Thrust: this drill works on the transition from knee flexion to extension and adds an eccentric control component to the movement. Another drill that’s good for both the quads and glutes and how they communicate 🗣 with each other
