VMO Squats

Hi, I'm Doctor Jo, a licensed Physical Therapist and Doctor of Physical Therapy. I hope you enjoy my video demos of stretches & exercises for common injuries and syndromes. If you have a question, just ask. Be safe. Have fun. And I hope you feel better soon.

If you have knee stability or tracking issues, or just need help strengthening your VMO (Vastus Medialis Oblique), the VMO Squat is a great exercise to try.

To perform a VMO squat:

  1. Stand with your feet about shoulder width apart, and turn your feet outward about 45 degrees.

  2. Keeping your knees behind your toes, squat down while sticking your bottom back like you are sitting in a chair. Slowly come back up.
