Good Exercises For Bad Knees.

23 Jul

As the bearer of bad knees, I know oh too well about the aches and pains that can come along with doing certain exercises. The catch is that strengthening the muscles around the knees will help to prevent injury and pain so one must exercise in order for their knees to feel better. Certain exercises like lunges can be murder for those who have bad knees as can the leg extension machines. Situations like those should be avoided by bearers of bad knees and instead they should look into exercises like these…

Good Exercises For Bad Knees.

– Step-Ups.  Always Keep Your Knee Above Your Ankle.

– Partial Squats. Abs Tight And Knees Behind Your Toes.

– Calf Raises. Can Literally Be Done Anywhere.

– Side Lying Leg Lifts. Use Ankle Weights Or A Resistance Band For A Better Workout.

– Sumo Squat. Toes Pointed Out And Back Straight.

Besides these exercises, a bearer of bad knees must also always obey the following…always use an athletic stance when squatting, always keep your toes pointed slightly outward, keep your knees behind your toes, keep your knees in line with your toes, warm up, stretch after wards and always be smart with your weight load 🙂
