High Knees

Part of my warmup: High Knees (Forward Runs or Static)

Main Muscle Group(s): Hamstrings, Calf, Thighs, Core

How-to-Execute:
– It is very much similar to running.
– Except you have to lift up your knees up to your waist level as shown in the picture.

Safety Measures:
1) Keep your core tight
2) Keep your back upright and neutral
3) Land on your knees softly

For Beginners:
Should you not be able to run and lift your knees high enough, you could opt to do it at walking pace, aiming to lift your knees as high as possible.
