I know a few of the answers already but I wish to expand the repetoire.
My knee is bad. RUNNING is OUT. SQUATS are out. Any sort of heavy weight that makes the knee seriously BEND (including my own body weight, which even when I get it to where it should be) is OUT.
I can do pushups, and walk strenuously. I can try to increase flexibility exercises for the afflicted joint, if I get some suggestions. I am hoping to buy a bicycle to assist this knee.
Anyhow, I want exercises I can do at home with minimal equipment that will help me. Both those that will ignore the lack of squatting potential, but will help slowly strengthen this leg, and exercises for the rest of my bod that won't make me feel I can't do them, because the leg will not cooperate. (I have had physical therapy, but the insurance has run out on that.)
Yep, there I am, swimming through the desert sands. Might just be a mirage, after all. But this is life, and we learn best about it if we explore it, and take our chances. A life unexplored, after all, is one of the saddest things out there.
