These seem to be for post-knee-replacement surgery. They're good exercises anyhow as well. But I was looking to strengthen my knees (the muscles supporting them) to Prevent or postpone surgery. I was looking for non-sitting exercises. Oh well.

I have not had any sort of replacements. My knees are just very weak. It's hard for me to even stand for long periods of time. All of the tendons in my legs are very tight. I hope these exercises work for me. Thank you for the advice.
