Weighted Sleds - A powerful principle taught by kneesovertoesguy is reversing out knee pain with reverse sled drags. The Tiny Tank Weighted Sled from the Tib Factory is an affordable and portable weighted sled that comes with pull handles for reverse sled drags to target the quads, ankles, and feet, and forward sled drags that challenge the glutes, hamstrings, calves, achilles tendons, and feet. If you are experiencing knee pain and have been cleared for exercise, reverse sled drags are great first step for regaining strength in a safe scalable way that helps you build strength from the ground up.

Slant Boards - Slant Boards are an excellent tool for knee pain and back pain when squatting. Squatting on an angle allows you to keep a more upright torso to challenge the quads instead of putting all of the weight on the lower back and hips. If you have ankle flexibility limitations, squatting on an angle will allow you to achieve a deeper, more comfortable range of motion, and allow you to drive the knees over the toes while remaining upright. Slant Boards can also be used for calf exercises and to improve range of motion in posterior strengthening exercises such as the Jefferson curl and Romanian dead lift.

Tibialis Training - Ben has described the tibialis as the first line of defense. It's used as a force absorber in athletic movements like cutting, sprinting, jumping, and bounding. A strong anterior tibialis also has the ability to improve dorsiflexion and mobility of the ankle. Tib raises can help fix shin splints, strengthen and improve ankle range of motion, and strengthen the tibialis to better support the knee and rest of the body during movement. It can be helpful to isolate sides if there is a large imbalance or an acute injury to one side that needs to be trained independently.
