Suggest VMO exercises
Hello Dr. please suggest me some good strengthening workouts for VMO. I am doing some exercises at home as told by doctor but I don't feel proper VMO contraction whereas my VL gets tightened very easily with very small effort. Is electric stimulation required to activate VMO? Share some link or website if possible.

Try performing a squat against a wall by sliding your back down the wall until your knees are at a right angle, shins vertical. Place a large ball (such as a football) in between your knees and squeeze it. This activates the Adductor muscles and because VMO arises from the tendon of Adductor Magnus, also stimulates VMO to contract. Hold this for 5 seconds and repeat it 10 times, gradually increasing to 5 second holds and 20 repetitions. Be careful while performing . tendon may get tear if its overstretched.
