In addition to walking, there are some great low impact, multi muscle moves that you can do that can are more gentle on your knee joints but still help you burn plenty of calories.
In this 10-minute workout video, I’ll show you simple ways to mix up your low impact, indoor cardio workout. The best part is that these exercises use minimal space and zero equipment (that’s right, no treadmill required!). I’ll also share one of my favorite moves to help strengthen the often neglected muscles in the shins that can help prevent the slips, trips and falls that begin to happen as we age.
Be sure to keep an eye out for my “workout” partner, my puppy Peanut in this vid! (Do you work out with your pets at home too?)

Note: Not all exercises are suitable for everyone. 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 knee pain regularly, be sure to consult a professional for an expert diagnosis.
