While squats and lunges are great for the glutes, they may not always feel so good on your knees. In this quick workout video, I share some of my favorite knee-friendly, equipment-free ways to strengthen your backside—you won’t even have to do a single squat or lunge.
Exercise and weight loss are wonderful ways to keep your knees healthy. Stick with the exercises that work best for your body to stay active and keep your knees happy.
Be sure to keep an eye out for my “workout” partner, my puppy Peanut, in this video. (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.
