Core Knowledge


Trigger Point - VMO


  • Lie facedown on the ground supported on your forearms with a trigger ball (tennis ball, for example) under your thigh just above the inside of the knee.
  • Roll the ball up and down the end of the thigh until you find a sore spot.  
  • Holding on this spot, slowly bend and straighten your knee.
  • Complete the set on one side before repeating with the opposite leg.

Coaching Tip

  • Place as much weight on the ball as you can tolerate.

Feel It

  • Releasing tension around your knee.
