Lower body workout that is easy on the knees
jdblack78 posted:

Can anyone tell me what a good lower body workout that is easy on the knees would be? Recently in the past year I have noticed my left knee pops and crackles while doing squats, lunges, and going up and down stairs. Its very annoying and I can't seem to concentrate on exercises that cause this popping because all I focus on is the popping. I'm preferably looking for ones I can do at home.

Thanks in advance!

I found that elliptical workout doesn't impact knees as others like treadmill, squats, lunges.

if you do squats, lunges, steps don't do too much and too fast.

Yoga could be a good one as well.

I agree! Ellipticals are definitely a great way to go.
