Hi, welcome back to the Cave Camp. I'm Coach PJ at CPJ Fitness in San Diego, California, and today I'm going to show you some strengthening exercises for a sore thigh muscle. Okay, I'm going to show you two strengthening exercises for a sore thigh muscle. The first one, you're going to lie in your back, you're going to get yourself a physio ball or an exercise ball. You're going to lie in your back, grab the ball with your feet and then bring your legs up vertical. And then from this position, all you have to do is bend the knee to a right angle and then extend the quad. This is a great quad bleeder, it burns and also works your hip muscles. But, this will isolate the quad muscle, get that extension on it and it'll fire it without putting any wear or pressure on the muscle or thigh muscle that's sore right now for rehab. Non-weight bearing and just crank them out. Now, I'll show you the second one. Okay, the second exercise is you're going to get the physio ball, you're going to stand up in a split stance and put one leg, put on top of the ball, just like this. The good, good thing about this is it's going to work your stabilizers for that burn sore thigh muscle. And again, what you do here is you keep the balance on the ball, you don't want that to move and you just want to go straight down when you kneel down and pop back up. This is going to burn the front quad and also work the back leg because that's the one that's stabilize in the physio ball. So, you've got dual action going on both quads, non-weight bearing and it will help strengthen the muscles. Once again, I'm Coach PJ and I just showed you some strengthening exercises for a strained thigh muscle.
