She also demonstrates some of the exercises that are used for patellar tendonitis.

My pain always comes the day after exercising too much. It usually feels fine when I’m doing it, then the next day I can barely walk

Andreas Henne says:

A helpful video. I think it's all about progressing properly, but this is easier said than done. When recovering from my patellar tendinopathy I found that the jumping excersises can be very dangerous. If you jump too high too quickly it can set you back for weeks. Sometimes it is difficult to plan the height and the power of a jump, so it can be hard to progress properly. I ended up skipping single leg jumping and did slow 500m runs. Those can be progressed accurately by running a bit faster or longer.

Dapz doesn't love me says:

Which is better the decline squat or this? And can I add eccentric exercise like eccentric single leg squat in this kind of program? And lastly can I start doing this kind of program right after I got a patellar tendonitis?
