Indestructible knees

So in the end you want indestructible knees. If you haven't figured how to this yet then here you go.

1)Make your post chain strong like bull
Get your glutes and hamstrings very very strong. Doing this will not only make you perform better in competition but it will also drastically decrease your risk of injury.

2)Mobility
Work on changing levels and increasing range of motion in different planes at different velocities (especially in regards to the hip). Many many mobility drills in both the sagital and the frontal plane (transverse is important as well but you'll see that you naturally go through these with many mobility drills).

3)Get the knots out
Myofascial release through ART, foam rollers, tennis balls w/e. These tools are friends and can keep you healthy for a very long time. Working on the glutes (especially glute medius), IT Band, hip flexors, quads, gastrocnemius, soleous, and achilles will help immensely.

4)Work on Dorsiflexion and ankle mobility
It may seem like not a big deal, but it take 1-2 minutes and could make or break your career.
