What are the best ways to be exercising without straining my knees?


Answer by  AmberT (45)

Elliptical machines, bicycles, and swimming are all excellent for cardio training without causing excessive wear and tear on knees. If you like to take group classes, try water aerobics or spinning.

Water exercises are the gentlest on your bones and joints, as the water supports your body. You can stand in chest-deep water without having to put all your weight on one leg or the other while you exercise whatever muscle group you're needing.

Low impact exercises will be the best kind of exercise to do. Perhaps the best low impact exercise you can do is swimming or water aerobics. This will be easy, even feel good on your joints.

Run on the elyptical instead of a treadmill, Do leg extensions instead of squats/leg press/hack squats. These exercises will put less strain on your knees.

If you are having knee problems, a good way to exercise is swimming. The water helps to cushion your knees so there is no impact in movement.

Some of the best exercises can be done in a pool. For example, swimming will burn many calories but not put any pressure on your knees.

Water exercises are best to avoid knee strain. Try water aerobics, or even just swimming laps. It's a full body workout without the pain.

You can do some breathing exercise by sitting straight on the chair. For getting comfort for your neck, you can rotate your head from left to right five times and right to left five times which can be continued for a few minutes. while rotating your head backward, breath in and breath out while doing vice versa.
