Knock-knees are not quickly overcome. If you will practice the following exercises persistently, you will get some results. Stand with hands on hips; cross the feet, and while in that position sit on the floor. Rise again without help from the arms. Heels together, hands on h , rise on toes. Bend the knees, and with the hands pull them far apart against resistance, until you are sitting on the heels. Return to position on toes, then lower the heels. Keep the back erect during the entire exercise. For developing the calves, practice rope skipping and toe raising.
