I recently hurt my knee. I think it is due to excessive running… which is disappointing. I was really excited to be up to four miles at a time. Slow and steady, but still… four miles! I have come to grips with the fact that due to a lifelong issue with my foot, I just don’t have the proper mechanics to be a runner.
With that said, I had to take some time to take it easy on my knee. I didn’t want to stop exercising… so I looked into some low impact exercises.
Walking is always a great form of exercise. If you have a gym membership, the eliptical machine is great as well.
Here are a few videos that I came across that still burn the calories with out putting your body through a pounding!
HIIT Low Impact Cardio and Toning… 30 minutes
HIIT Low Impact Bootcamp... about 30 minutes
Jillian Michaels Cardio Yoga Meltdown… about 35 minutes
