Vmo and glut medius exercises to activate them

My pattella thendon is always sore. O think it is because my knee is very un stableI due to non activation of the VMO and the glut midius. At least this is what I think.
Is there somebody that can raccomand some exercises for the activations of those two mussels? I am training for a half ironman and I definitely feel the my leg are sore In different way: sx quod is stronger and more tonic, right quod softer...
Thank you very much
Regards
Ric

Hey Ric!

I would suggest considering an evaluation by a sports medicine specialist or an orthopedician for an accurate diagnosis of the condition causing your symptoms; since in a few situations such as tendinopathies, rest for a few weeks may be indicated; while in other exercises to strengthen the muscle may help. A management plan can be drafted once the issue behind the symptoms is identified.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
