Welcome to our third installment of e3 Fitness Exercises!
The vast majority of people externally rotate the femur when elevating the knee to a perpendicular position. This necessitates body to laterally shift to un-weight the leg so it can elevate. In a supine position, bringing he knee towards the chest, you will notice that the knee has a tendency to move in an outward direction. Against resistance the external rotation is even more noticeable and the muscles that are the primary movers are on the outside of the thigh. Over a period of time the lower back, hip, and knee will have negative effects.
The Supine Heel Lift is used to program the muscles of the leg to perform a straighter contraction / extension when moving the leg. After the exercise repeating the knee elevation against some resistance the primary muscle recruitment pattern moves to the midline of the thigh.
