I have bad knees to I used a chair and did upright crunches, leg lifts try that for 10 or 15 min a day.

There are many exercise you can do, even if you have bad knees. A small table top bicycle is great for working your legs on a low resistance setting. You can squeeze a ball between your knees, use therabands, do calisthenics. I hired a personal trainer to design a safw workout program for me.

Good luck, pain is your signal you are overdoing it!

Exercise is the best possible remedy for your knees as long it does not consist of high impact. emoticon

Just take it slow and do what you can. As mentioned below, have a chat with your doctor or physio to see what exercise you can and can't do yet. Build up slowly, and please do not try to work through the pain.

Listen to your body.

Before I had double knee replacement at age 51, I knew I had to walk in order to BE ABLE to walk!! I just wish I had known I needed to stretch first!! Good luck!

I've had a couple of knee surgeries. It is like anything..you don't use them they get stiff and not wanting to bend. You have to just keep trying. Don't let it be an excuse. When I work them, they feel so good. Just keep with it. This lifestyle change is worth it.

"Bad kneees" is a generic term which has no specific identification. Have a qualified person evaluate your "kne problem" and advise you as to the proper courses of action which are your options.

No it isn't. What you put in your mouth (or what you don't) is what is responsible for weight loss/not losing weight.

Think this guy is blaming his knees?

I would see a doctor to determine what exercises make sense for you in your condition. Of course, you can also skip the knees all together and focus on upper body until you figure out with your doctor or physical therapist what options make the most sense for you. Tighten up your diet to lose weight. Exercise to look and feel good.

I enjoy a lot of the video's, but bending down with my knees is bad they really hurt sometimes. I guess this is one of the reasons for me to loss weight.
