Taking advantage of the topography.
For some reason, running the movements doesn't work as well; not even as a progression. A good progression is weighting them (pictured), or resisting them with a belt & bungee cord. Sometimes athletes ask me what the difference would be walking backwards up a stairway. My simple answer is it hurts and it doesn't work.
It's great for any patellofemoral issues, i.e. "jumpers knee", patellofemoral stress syndrome.
