- Runner's knee is something you hear

fairly regularly in the running world.

It is something that can seriously hamper your training

or leave you completely sidelined.

So today, I'm heading to the gym,

and I'm gonna be taking a closer look

at what exactly is going on in runner's knee

and, more importantly, how you can prevent

and avoid it in the first place.

(beeping)

Okay, so runner's knee is probably

something most of you have heard about,

but do you really know what it is?

Well, I'm going to very quickly try and explain,

and to help I brought in a model knee.

Now, this is actually a slightly poorly model knee

because it's actually got a ruptured ACL tendon here.

So actually count yourself lucky

if you've only got a runner's knee.

But actually all jokes aside,
