There are quite a few things that you can do in order to avoid knee pain when you are working out. One of the most important yet overlooked things is simply having the right shoes for working out. When you have poor support at your feet, it starts a negative chain reaction up to your leg and your knee. You also need to make sure that you are exercising with the proper form as poor form can help cause knee pain too.
- Make sure that you are using proper shoes as poor support at you feet can hurt your knee.
- Make sure that your form and technique are on point because poor form can lead to knee pain.
- Try to prevent your knees from collapsing by keeping them aligned vertically with your heels.
