Welcome to Day 2 of the #25DaysofMFit. Today we are working the lower body with a no lunge leg workout.
This leg workout is perfect for those of you with knee issues because it does not include any lunging, kneeling, or jumping. Lunges are one exercise that I am very cautious about giving to clients with previous knee injuries. Even with correct form, lunges can still cause pain. Today’s workout will show you several exercises that work that same muscles as lunges do. However, they are much safer for your joints.
Give it a try and let me know what you think by commenting on the YouTube video!
