The Best Thigh Exercises for People with Bad Knees (Video!)

In This Article

If traditional lower body moves like squats and lunges don’t work for your knees, check out these knee-friendly alternatives. During this 10-minute workout video, I’ll show you some of my favorite ways to effectively work your legs without a single squat or lunge. You won’t need any equipment for these moves, but you’ll want to be close to a wall for a few of the exercises.

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?)

Did you try the moves? Let me know which one was your favorite in the comments below!

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.
