Alright, I have heard your cries and seen your comments. I know you all love my knee-friendly workouts, so today I have created a no squat leg workout. Your knees can thank me now!
If you suffer from knee pain, this is a great workout for you! But, it is not the only workout of mine you can do. I actually have made tons of workout videos on this blog that are safe for knees!
I have a whole playlist on the MFit YouTube channel filled with knee-friendly workouts. So if squats are something that cause you pain you should check out those videos. If knee pain is something that causes you a lot of pain, I also recommended checking out the MFit Peach Plan. That 4-week plan will teach you how to properly activate your glutes so you feel your knees less on basic leg movements.
You will need a mini resistance band for the workout below. If you don’t have mini bands yet, I have all of my favorite (affordable) brands linked in the MFit Amazon store!
Try the no squat leg workout below.
