Repeat as above, with the addition of turning your foot and knee outwards slightly to engage the vastus medialis (part of the quadricep muscle of the thigh).

Quadriceps weakness has been a concern with the use of the CFNB.
Strong quadriceps (thigh) muscles reduce the pain of arthritic knees, and 'also may protect against cartilage loss in the knees, according to research findings.
quadriceps weakness, improper firing pattern) is one of the major factors leading to patellofemoral pain [4].
[14] reported that backward running reduced the joint stress and increased the quadriceps strength more than forward running.
These risk factors include excessive hip adduction and internal rotation during dynamic tasks (e.g., running and landing from a jump), weak or tight quadriceps, greater vertical peak force to the lateral heel and second and third metatarsals during gait, delayed activation of the vastus medialis obliquus compared with the vastus lateral (identifiable with a patellar tendon tap or rocking back on the heels), and increased knee-abduction impulses and moments during running and landing activities.
Patella is a sesamoid bone included in the extensor of the knee; Its role is to increase the efficiency of the quadriceps by designing its forward pulling force, is increasing the quadriceps tendon lever arm.
The measured parameters compared between the two groups included T1, T2, T2* relaxation times, fat fraction (FF), and cross-sectional area (CSA) of the quadriceps femoris and the hamstring muscles.
