A 15-Minute Lower-Body Workout for Bad Knees

Complete15 Minute Lower Body Workout for Bad Knees

Squats and lunges are two of my favorite classic moves to incorporate into lower-body workouts because they really work! However,as effective as they are, these particular moves can cause knee pain for a lot of people. The good news is that you can still effectively target the lower body with these alternative exercises that won’t strain your joints. This full-length, low-impact workout doesn’t include a single squat or lunge and is designed to be gentle on the joints but tough on your hips, thighs and glutes!

All you’ll need is a sturdy chair for this routine, and–if you’d like to add more intensity–a set of light dumbbells.

Please note: If you are working with a specific knee injury, be sure to get your doctor and/or physical therapist’s approval before attempting this workout. If you suffer from regular knee, hip or other joint pain, be sure to consult a professional for an expert diagnosis.
