Squat/jack knife dive substitue for bad knees
I know, lot's of peeps have bad knees. Two car accidents when young, now I'm not-young and professionals say I will eventually need new plastic knees or whatever. Walking, I'm fine. Getting up or lowering to a chair is painful. I've found a little information in MDA forums about people with knee issues, but I have not found info specifically about substitue exercises for squats and jack knife/dive. Can anyone suggest ways to work the quads, gluts without having to work the hinge of the knee? Is it possible? :confused: and thanks for any info.
thanks for help for the knees
Yeah, there are other excerises. Thanks so much for opening my eyes. A few qts:
what is a hamstrng curl on a swiss ball...exactly? also, lying on tummy to activate glutes and lift a leg, will that really work a quad like a squat? i know, maybe that's all I can get with my knees. But am I doing something to really work the quad?
I am doing static squats with minor pain/grinding. thanks for the advice. very much appreciated. Will try to figure out the other exercises. thanks so mich, I really want to make this work. (with these knees)
