It is Day 20 of the #25DaysofMFit and I know the workouts have been tough so far. Today’s safe for knees cardio workout won’t be easy either. It is low impact, but still very challenging.
I try to include low impact modifications in all of my workout videos. But this workout does not need any modifications! There is no jumping in this cardio routine.
There are a lot of people out there with knee, ankle and lower back pain. The workout below is perfect for those individuals, but it will still be challenging for those of you with no pain.
Let’s talk about knee pain for a moment. While there are some people who suffer from chronic knee pain that cannot be healed, some knee pain is preventable and treatable!
A corrective exercise plan that focuses on releasing tension in the calves and quads will ease knee joint pain. Pair that with a glute and hamstring strengthening routine, and your knees should feel way better. My 4-Week Peach Plan includes both of those things. Try it out if knee pain is a major problem for you.
