Expert tip: If you can't raise your leg at all, don't be discouraged. It's very normal, and it just means that your vastus medialis needs to be improved.

However, you need to feel a contraction above your knee. Place your right hand just above the knee on your right thigh and a little to the left. You can sense the vastus medialis muscle contracting when you flex the quadriceps. You'll be able to raise your leg off the floor as you get stronger.
