How to Get a Pain-Free Burn: The Best Cardio for Bad Knees. In addition to walking, there are some great low impact, multi muscle moves that you can do that can are more gentle on your knee joints but still help you burn plenty of calories. You can look at the following warm-up routine: Use a warm towel to gently rub your knee in a circular motion. Take a hot water shower.

Ask your physical therapist to gently massage your knee before exercising. After the warm-up, you can start doing the following low-impact exercises for relieving knee pain. Swimming is one of the best exercises for people with bad knees. It’s low impact and versatile, and it burns calories quickly. Proper form is crucia.

The BEST Cardio Choice for Knee Pain. The best way to get your heart going without stressing your knees at all is circuit training with upper body exercises. Pick exercises you can do for about a minute (but no more). Do them for 30 seconds and then take a ten second break before switching to the next exercise.

Use an elliptical for pain-free exercise on the knees. Bad knees can quickly get in the way of regular exercise, especially with chronic conditions like arthritis. However, just because your knees are bad does not mean you have to give up aerobic exercise. There are equipment options at your local fitness center and for the home that can help you gain the benefits of aerobic. ” Rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE) is good for knee pain caused by a minor injury or an arthritis flare.

Give your knee some rest, apply ice to reduce swelling, wear a compressive. About 20% of American adults suffer from knee pain, which makes sense considering two-thirds of Americans are overweight or obese. Those extra pounds increase the stress on your knees, which can cause chronic pain and lead to other knee-related complications, such as arthritis or osteoarthritis.Fortunately, exercise can help you lose weight and fat, gain muscle, and keep your knees.

Riding a stationary bike is a good way to burn calories and is a nice alternative to running which can irritate your knees. Experts suggest doing at least 30 minutes of aerobic activity 5 times a week to see the beneficial effects. A bike also addresses the range of motion in your knees, hips, and ankles which is often affected by arthritis.

  • nice content i’m following! hey Doc! i have a question! like 2 years ago i had a blessure injury in my knee it was rotated, the pain wasn’t that bad, i didn’t see a doctor, but now i feel like my knee is weak, sometimes when i lift heavy weight i feel the pressure on that knee, what should i do?

  • I’m 14 years old my knee is injured because I fell at school and twisted it and this was perfect for me, Thank you Pahla if that’s your name you really helped me and your commentary is what me keep going like how do you do that? anyways Thanks for the workout this world needs more people like you!!!

  • I love u sir, i also 4 surgeries on my right knee and also having flat foot… But nobody never cares about flat foot and broken knee while telling exercises… But you did and explained with every micro precision… Lot of love from my side��������

  • Does it really burn 400? I’ve been doing jumping ones and my knees hurt. So if this burns 400, this is all I am gonna do from.now on.

  • I have meniscus tear in my left knee and arthritis in right knee.I am 54 years old.I want to reduce my belly fat. Can I do these exercises?

  • I guess I’m late in doing this workout but it was fantastic!! I’ve had three orthopedic surgeries, and this work out….WORKED ME OUT! This was awesome! Thank you!!

  • Based on the schedule received at the beginning of this week, there was supposed to be an inner thigh workout I was really looking forward to, but I can’t find the video and assumed Abby posted it on another platform or was late. Did I miss something? Please help! I wanna make it up if I can before the end of the week. Thanks in advance!

  • Thank you so much for the workout, I’ve been doing HIIT + intense cardio for past 2 months, without only 1-2 days rest, which makes my right knee really uncomfortable and a bit pain sometime. Your low impact workout is exactly what i need right now, and a good way to sweat while taking care of my knee!

  • I wanted to do work out for so long but worry about my knees. This is the second knee friendly work out that I tried. I am addicted to it. Now the first thing pops up in my mine when I wake up is this 40 minute knee friendly work out. Even thought I didn’t lost weight after one month, I will continue to do it. Love to sweat with you every day. Thank you Pahla!

  • I didn’t think this workout would be that intense, but I’m sweating like crazy! It was challenging without being too overwhelming. Definitely going to add this workout to my weekly routine!

  • Ugh I hate that I am a day behind because I work out at 6 or 7 am and these don’t post till later. Love you. Abby you are so motivating. This is my workout tomorrow

  • Whew! That was great, Pahla. I managed to keep up with you to the end. All your training sessions are fun, and different. And I love seeing Aggie, Rosie (and Blossom, only once)! You’re an inspiration. I can feel the difference of my body in my clothing. All positive.

  • Hey Doctor Jo, I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering what are the best stretches to do for each muscle group after I lift? Hope your having a great day!

  • I have a problem with my knee extension I hope these excercises helps. Question is how long of a process does it take to get your knee to go straight? I can’t walk due to my knee.

  • I love this. I’m 40, but after a knee operation I lost all my fitness and felt completely terrified of working out again, but this is fantastic! Thank you for putting this together and making it available

  • I thought that a workout without squat and jumping will be super easy but I am wrong! I sweat so much after doing this. Thank you for making a knee friendly workout!

  • Hello…. today tried this workout and I really enjoyed it and it’s really one friendly, i genuinely wanted to thanku u for this great workout

  • Brilliant Dr:)))) My knees pain is gone:))) thank you but when I try to jump I’m feeling horrible horrible pain please advise???

  • Wow. It looks interesting and practical. For last few months I feel little pain on my upper knees doing squat, but not in any other movement. About 12/13 years I have massive pain also when I changed the shoes/sandals and it was gone. Hope this time it will also heal itself. Anyway I am going to try out your steps. Thanks for sharing. God bless you and keep posting.

  • I really appreciate this workout. As someone who has a torn ACL my doctor told me very low impact exercises. All I see online is HIIT exercise I am unable to do. I’m just so glad that she is able to accommodate to a majority of people. ����

  • Optional workout?? This is going to the top of my go-to workouts when in pain. Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for this! I’ve actually been pushing through the pain during this challenge (which felt quite risky) and feeling much stronger, but a knee-friendly workout is always welcome. Thank you again, you’re the best!

  • You are truly the best, thank you for being so mindful of others limitations but still providing a to be active despite certain limitations. I had a serious knee injury/surgery 2 years ago and although I now work out consistently and weight train, things like squats and lunges are still straining on my knee and never feel right. Thank you so much ��

  • I am new to working out (beginner) and I am in my early 20’s. I was working out before but only 1-2 times a week and had no problem. Now I am working out more often. My knee is starting to feel uncomfortable but not really pain. Help! thank you!

  • I’m new to your channel. I have lipedema and it is hard on my lower body joints. I also have osteoarthritis in both my knees. I have completed a few of your videos and they have been so helpful. It is nice to see that you give alternate advice for people that may not be able to complete the full stretch/exercise. Inclusion is appreciated. Thank you.

  • Amazing workout! This was easy on my knees but still a great cardio workout that got me sweating. Thank you for coming up with this routine!

  • I’m so glad you posted this video specifically for those with bad knees. Since quarantine my knees have been bothering me, which wasn’t the case before when I could go out and walk around regularly. I still want to exercise but not exacerbate the knee pain.

  • I wanna loose weight well i am not overweight anymore just wanna loss weight then wanna go for muscle gain…. I find this workout friendly whenever i get pain due to muscle break in my thighs due to squats or high intensity workouts… I like to go for this workout! I just wish it will help me to loss weight like others hiit workouts promise to loss weight even while sleeping! Thanks for sharing this workout i am gonna recommend this workout to my mom!

  • I am a 34yr old female that is pretty fit and I just injured my knee. I wanted a low impact workout and your video makes me sweat! I can already say that it has strengthened the muscles surrounding my knees and supporting muscles. Thank you so much!!!

  • NO SQUATS IN A HIIT WORKOUT?? ThE bLaSpHeMy!! (jk) thank you!! I really love these low-impact HIIT’s. My shoulders still have trouble with the tabletops though, maybe it’s just my positioning but I feel like they’re in my ears and it’s super uncomfortable to hold in the back of my arms. I opted for a glute bridge with leg raise to modify and still felt a burn

  • My problem is that when I’m doing these workouts I only get to go half way because, well, I get tired but also when the exercises start repeating in the second round, I can’t find the motivation to do them. I feel like since I already have why bother, and I know it’s not the right approach but I can’t help it.

  • This is literally perfect for my mom, she’s getting older but she really wants to stay in shape. Her knees are the worse for her, and considering almost every exercise puts a lot of strain on them, this is a blessing!

  • Another great video..
    That quad stretch almost gave me anxiety though ��.. I’ve stopped doing them..
    I’mma have to get back into this..
    & yes.. it is different from the usual standing straight/pulling ur foot type quad stretch..
    “Eat dirt”..
    (The benefits are truly worth it)

  • Just discovered your channel. I typed “regenerating knee cartilage” and one of your videos came up. Yeah I had a doctor tell me cartilage can’t regenerate (and I have a healthy distrust of the medical establishment) so I’m hoping your recommendations will help my creaky knees.

  • I’ve been doing some boring HITT workouts that also hurt my knees afterwards. I’m so relieved that I’ve find you!
    You are so fun to workout with! my respects to you talking while working out! This truly made me Sweat a Lot and I really enjoyed it when I actually detest to exercise lol.

  • I had Arthoscophic Partial Menisectomy Surgery of my Right Knee on March 10, 2020. I feel like i have a knee. I currently go to physical therapy. I have a slight pain just before gastrocnemius muscle. I also feel stiffness just before i get on stationary bike
    . I still lack strength. I hope to loose weight.

  • Hi Dr Jo, do you have any videos for people who’ve had a knee replacement 2-3 years ago who are still trying to stay in shape? Thanks

  • I dont want the challenge to end! Everyday I am excited for the email and new workout! I was so bored with my workouts before, this challenge really helped

  • Been doing the made to move it and just aren’t seeing results:(( any tips to stay motivated??

    edit: I’m not saying the challenge hasn’t been good, I’ve actually found it really well thought out and put together just struggling to stay on track. Love your vids!!

  • Love this one! I have bad knees and hips…genetics. I am always modifying (or try to) exercises that are too rough for them. Thank you for another great one ����

  • Thank you so much for explaining the mechanics here. In my left knee both anterior and posterior cruciates, both median and lateral meniscus are all torn and there’s no cartilage left. These are right up my street. Thanks again.

  • Could you maybe do a workout for those with weak ankles? I have Achilles tendinitis and have struggled with HIIT. Maybe it could be more upper body focused HIIT?

    Thanks Abby you’ve really helped us through this lockdown!!

  • Join the Mini Challenge, the FREE 5-day exercise plan designed for YOU. Get fit and stay motivated! http://bit.ly/joinMiniChallenge

  • This is hands down the best workout if you’re looking to burn calories w/ easy workouts. I usually cannot keep going without stopping but did not stop once!

  • Thanks for this workout ms Pahla! I appreciate that it’s low impact as I injured my knee trying to keep up with someone else’s HIIT routine months ago. I’ll be sure to check some of your other stuff as well. Cheers!

  • Thank you, knee problems make it so hard to follow exercises people my age (early 20s) are doing and heart problems (fixed, but you know…) make it hard to follow hiit exercises, this was really fun and didn’t feel like I was dying so thank you so much!

  • omg THANK YOU literally this week I’ve been scouring for a true knee friendly workout cuz my knee has been swollen for a while ����������

  • i’ve been doing your walking videos. this is my first time on this one. i did 10 minutes, then ate breakfast. i just did 17 minutes and had to catch my breath. still have 15 to go and i plan to finish. thank you paula.

  • This looks great�� I went all in a week ago, doing an exercise routine every day and my knees are dying, they feel injured and I know I need to change what I’ve been doing, I definitely NEED this kind of workout going forward, thank you!

  • Did Monday, missed Tuesday but have done Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and today.
    I have an almost 20 year old, an almost 5 year old and an 18 month old, I put on almost 3st over the past 5 years so am now at 11st 7.
    I was diagnosed with ASD and probable ADHD in April. These workouts are helping me immensely to feel better anout myself. Thank you!! ��

  • Thank you! I love how you meet the warrior where s/he is currently functioning, then help through the next step in the progression.

  • That was really good, thank you! I’m not very coordinated, so I tend to get my footwork a bit muddled up, but it certainly made me sweat!

  • Please help! I’m still new to the whole HIIT workouts so I have a question: what days are the best days to do a HIIT workout? I workout Monday-Friday (Legs/Glutes-Mon and Wed; Arms/Back-Tues and Thrus). So im not sure what day is pkay for me to do an HIIT workout. I know i need to incorporate cardio (just been doing weights) but I’m not sure what days.

  • A lot of people nowadays are trying to figure out the best method to drop weight. Then again, being able to discover a diet plan that can work for you is tough to discover. A crucial thing you want to comprehend is that a diet is effective for one person may not operate for another. And that means you have to know what your getting into before you begin one of those diets. Therefore we’ve decided to offer you a fantastic look in the Xtreme Fat Loss Diet. This may provide you enough information to find out whether this really is something which is suitable to your needs. Read more here https://truehealthreport.com/xtreme-fat-loss-diet-review/

  • I found one of your 15 min beginner workouts a while ago. It has been my go to since. Today I decided to see what else you had in offer. I hate floor work so these standing and knee friendly routine are perfect

  • I’m having extreme issues with eating clean then caving into a “cheal meal” once a week. I feel like it destroys all my efforts and I have guilt.

  • Abby this was awesome. Today I went to do a hiit workout with a lot of jump lunges and squats and all of a sudden I was experiencing knee pain. I still desperately wanted to finish my workout and found this gem. Thanks so much ��

  • Great workout! I added some light dumbbells and worked through the 10 sec rests and burned 343 cal. Best of all, my knees feel great unlike many other workout videos. Thank you!

  • Hi Phala, these knee friendly workouts are great. I really enjoy doing them especially as my left knee doesn’t hurt after like so many other workouts. I’d love a daily knee friendly challenge for weight loss ��

  • I discovered your workouts today. I was looking for something that would be kind to my knees and it really was, while at the same time really getting my heart rate. Thank you.

  • Abby my girl! I LOVE LOVE LOVE your workouts ❤️ I hate squats, because i feel like i cant do them right and my thighs are just getting bigger �� So here is my question: Could you do a workout with jumping, but without squats? You’re THE BEST! ❤️

  • Ohhh this is great. Any chances of a back friendly one coming our way? I got a spinal fusion surgery and it’s a bit hard to find exercises that don’t involve bending or twisting

  • Back on it after a short holiday resumed week 1 -I’m guessing this is a different knee friendly cardio ¿ Anyway it was fabulous ¡¡Thanks Pahla ��������������

  • This is my 2nd time doing this workout. Thank you so very much!!! I turned 46 years old last week and the high impact stuff isn’t agreeing with my knees. Although this is low impact my heart beat is through the roof and I’m sweaty just like I like it!!!! God bless you and keep you safe!!!

  • Okay this isn’t really about the workout (which I will do later today HAHA because dudeee the moves look so GOOD) but can we please have a look into fitness/exercise wardrobe??? They always hug your curves perfectly and they don’t budge when you do squats!!

  • Hello! I had a question about my kneesI am a dancer, and when I stretch my legs in front of me my heels lift slightly off the ground, meaning I have some hyper extension. However, there is a space under my knee that doesn’t touch the ground! Is it possible for me to get rid of this gap by stretching? Can I increase my hyper extension so my feet about 6 inches off the ground when my legs are straight? Thanks so much!

  • I think the reason you’re sweating more than me might be because you’re talking so much. It gave me shortness of breath just listening ��

  • Thanks for this knee friendly workout and your very real and hilarious huffs and puffs. Appreciated knowing that we’re in this together!��

  • Thank you for making this!! I have torn my ACL, MCL, PCL and dislocated my knee, so I have been feeling really lost about what to do for exercise. This helped a lot

  • I recently donated blood this past week and my workouts haven’t been my best performance. Still, I keep pushing through and trying to focus on form rather than speed as I know that’s more important to get an effective workout in.

  • Hola Dr. Jo. So while playing soccer I was took a fast step and heard a pop on my left leg. I believe it’s a harmstring injury since now I can lift my left leg at all and if I put a lot of pressure it feels horrible. How can I get it better? Thank you in advance.

  • I did this today. It’s so nice. It’s a sweaty workout. I marvel at you, how you keep talking throughout the workout, it’s not easy and I really appreciate it for taking so much effort for us. I like when you say you are doing such a good job, it is very motivating for me. I do this and strength workout alternate days. You and your workouts have made a big difference in my life. Stay blessed forever.

  • I only did half of the workout today because it was my first time exercising after a knee injury doing HIIT two months ago but I will definitely be back to do the rest and all of it in full when I feel up to. My knee didn’t cry out in pain once but I am most certainly sweaty.

  • A definite “push day” for me! Quite a difference after hearing about “moderation” yesterday! PHEW! Just about got to the end with only one modification ��

  • FINALLY! A workout for bad knees that doesn’t involve endless marching, super-fast moves, squatting or hard knee bends. Thank you! My only negative is that there’s a little too much talking, lol, but I can always turn off the sound, lol.

  • thank you for this workout. I was really nervous because I always associate cardio with knee pain but I didn’t have ANY pain at all. I will definitely be watching this video again. It’s been so hard getting back into fitness and this just makes it so much better

  • i had habit of lie on back / sleep for 14-15 hours nd now m feeling back pain when I sleep for 9-10 hours can you suggest some excersize for that

  • You are awesome! Thank you so much for this workout.
    I have a joint problem on my knees and hips. During winter I had to use crunches to walk so I gained some weight.
    This is the first long workout I can do without hurting myself!
    This is amazing.
    358kcal burned!!

    Just a suggestion, a hip friendly workout would be really great because the kicks are really difficult for people with hip issues.

  • Thank you for the video. I have had 7 knee surgeries between 2 knees. 4 ACL.. 5 meiniscus… a cyclops lesion…and an arthritis cleanout… and I still need a total knee but am too young to get it. Between basketball and soccer… then locked knees as I get older… my knees have been an issue.

  • This workout was just what I needed today. I strained my right ankle by taking 33,000 steps when I went to the zoo on Thursday, and due to this my ankle was in a lot of pain yesterday. I skipped yesterday’s workout and rested most of the day, icing my ankle and keeping it elevated. I woke up feeling a little bit better today, but my right ankle is still pretty sore and I struggle going down the stairs, or anything that puts too much weight on it. This squat-free workout gave me the opportunity to move my body today, and also respect my body’s limits with my ankle. Thank you for that, and for teaching me to listen to my body!

  • hey jo great video but can you help me with smth i sit for like 6-8 a day because i need to on my chair, every 2 hours i make 10 minute breaks, and every hour i stand up for a minute or two from my desk, but the problem i still have is my left leg is less powerful than my right one cause the way i sit, and after sitting for 6-8 hours ( with breaks) i stand up and i tend to look on the right side of view of everything, and that causes me neck pain, and also left side of my body pain overall,because if my neck is not aligned in front of me and is aligned in the right part of view ofc my body tends to go right so when i try to stretch my neck or my left side of the body it hurt badly.. Im lucky i do cardio and other bodyweight exercises and im reducing the pain but.. i want to get over it for real.. How can i correct this? I know it sounds weird, but i really dont know how to sit properly, i watched a lot of videos on youtube, but i dont get it all people say to stay in perfect aligment with your mouse and keyboard as well as monitor in front of you but tbh for me is waaaayyyy to uncomfortable it s like i stay on a chair like a robot, no left moves, no right moves, only up straight and i just cant stay like that. I want to talk with a psyhical therapist but in my country “psyhical therapist” is almost inexistent. I guess i need to go in other country to treat myself from this i don’t wanna get hurt or having more pain in time.
    Anyways, stay safe God Bless.

  • My first time doing this routine and had to stop at least three times to take a breather but damn!!! I finished it and feel awesome!!! Thank you Pahla!!!

  • At the beginning, I was 100# overweight and couldn’t do a single squat without significant pain in knees and hips. Now, 2.5 years after deciding to fix myself, I have lost 90#… I walk 4-7 miles a day, and do sets of push-ups and squats as I go, now up to 100 of each per day… no knee or hip pain. It takes focus and determination, but it can be done. The #1 recommendation I make is “Educate Thyself”… your videos are very helpful in this regard.

  • I am getting anxiety for real thinking about how close to the end of this program we are ������ i look forward to your notification every day after work. And i have been getting the best results with you �� Thank you abby. Your program and tips are amazing. You are such an amazing kind soul ��������������

  • Hi Paula,
    I want to say a huge thanks. I discovered your workouts a month or so ago. I live in South Africa and we are on partial lock down and so the gym is no option. I would not go anyway as I am 64 and do not wNt to tKe the risk.
    Anyway it is wonderful to have this opportunity. You are a star.

  • Hi Dr Jo i have had pain in my right knee because of tight quads and find stretching it standing up normally cause more pain never seen a quad stretch like you demonstrate before but looks like I have finally found the stretch that will do the job thank you.

  • Today I was seconds away from being lazy and not working out, then i realised that it’s about showing up and giving your body the attention is deserves and am so happy to say I DID IT <3 thank you Abby!! you did the best HIIT workouts ever i swear <3

  • dude I was going to dis on you but you made it seem awesome. I did some of the stuff you said and it was fantastic. I just have to get off my butt and do it now, thank you

  • Hi,I have been doing periformis streches,having severe pain in butt and qaudriceps radiating. In whole left leg.
    Shall I stop doing or continue,what else I can do to overcome this.kindly reply

  • Thanks Pahla: Days 11 and 12 were awesome. Each session just gets better and better! See you tomorrow oyu have got me hooked! Have a great day! xx

  • I have no cartilage and torn meniscus in both knees. So far no surgery setup. But trying to lose weight to see if it helps. Also, I have a compression fx in my lower back. So, I am a mess, but overall I handle pain well and still coach basketball and ride a bike. So not bad. But plan to add this to my morning routing as I don’t have alot of leg exercises to my workout. So, thank you and if you have more ideas for my issues. Please share I will keep watching.

  • Hello! I just wanted to thank you for this workout. It seems another other ‘cardio’ workout online has so much to do with jumping and squats and I can never make it through thanks to my knee injury. Last July, I tore my meniscus, and sprained my ACL and LCL, so this workout is a great help. I didn’t expect it at all but I was wheezing and dripping sweat by the twenty minute mark! Not only is this workout nice for the knee, you are also a great motivator. I hate workouts that have the instructor not talking and I loved that you talked me through the whole thing while also ‘suffering’ along side me! Thanks again, I will definitely be putting this workout in my weekly rotation!

  • Hi Jo thank you for your wonderful video. I am having so much trouble trying to purchase your knee sleeve by sleeve stars. All I am able to find is the knee brace. Where can I purchase this product?

  • Thanks for today, it was awesome! I loved your enthusiasm, and tips as you went along. I learned so much in such a short amount of time:), didn’t realise an at home cardio could be so easy! I have a question: Should this cardio workout be followed by other strength training exercises (weights and core)? Because that is what I’ve done haha, but would it be too much? Thanks x

  • I just wish the videos get posted earlier in the morning. I have no air conditioning and so I prefer to wake up early and do these workout before work.

  • I have been exercising and training for over 35 years, mainly as a cyclist, and I learn something new everyday from Doctor Jo. Keep up the good work.
