I am 57 years old. I was suggested by my doctor to exercise my leg muscles to get relief from knee pain. The knee pain was diagnosed due to loose muscles causing the joint to get loose and bones contacting with each other. I have been doing cycling for 10 mins to reach my heart rate from 105 to 155 and then do leg curls, leg extensions on alternate days. I feel good after the exercise for about 4 hours and then the pain sets in again. I have been sticking to this regime for almost 5 weeks.
My muscles never ached as they should when one starts to exercise. Also, I don't see any toning up of my muscles.
My diet is very simple - Muesli with dry fruits n nuts plus milk and one boiled egg, Lunch consists of barley n Japanese mushrooms and dinner of 1 chapati n vegetable.
Do I have to take some sort of supplements to give kick start to muscle toning???
Lastly, I do exercise during my lunch break only.
