20 Dec Safe For Knees Cardio #25DaysofMFit
It is Day 20 of the #25DaysofMFit and I know the workouts have been tough so far. Now, today’s cardio workout won’t be easy either, but it will be a little easier on your joints.
In all of my MFit workouts, I try to include modifications to make them fit every individuals’ needs. 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. A couple years ago, I posted a Safe For Knees workout that has received a lot of attention. I hope this workout and all of my low impact workouts can help just as many people.
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 as well as strengthening the glutes and the hamstrings can help a majority of people who complain about achy knees. My Peach Plan program comes with a corrective exercise plan that focuses on these exact things. Try it out if knee pain is a major problem for you.
Back to today’s workouts… The video below is 14-minutes of butt-kicking cardio, but if you are looking for a bit more muscle-building today, I also have posted a new upper body workout over on the MFit Membership.
