3 Workouts for stronger, pain free knees
Wednesday, September 30, 2015
Sore knees are a fact of life for too many people. But the biggest mistake you can make is avoiding exercise. These 3 workouts are designed to strengthen sore knees—keeping you going strong without the pain.
1. THE STEPMILL
This moving staircase—available at some gyms—is easy on joints but still a good cardio workout. Do 15 to 30 minutes 2 or 3 times a week.
2. BUTT BUILDER
Hinge forward at hips, hands on wall. Lift left leg back without moving hips. Hold for 1 minute. Switch legs. Do 3 to 5 times with each leg.
3. DOUBLE CALF STRETCH
Place balls of feet on rolled towel or yoga mat. Bend at hips, lift tailbone, and rest hands on chair or thighs. Hold 1 minute. Repeat after each strength move.
