Does anyone have any suggestions about improving knee valgus while running and/or jumping? In a controlled, static manner such as squatting and dead lifting I can create an arch in my foot to prevent it, but in a more dynamic environment like running or jumping I’m a little stumped.

Thanks David! I will definitely check out Carl’s website.
Valgus knees in running and jumping are often the result of turned-out feet. Feet should point straight ahead in both, so check out your foot position. Also check out “Ready to Run” which is excellent!
