    Lower body workout that is easy on the knees

    Hi,

    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.

    I get a great workout with about 20 minutes on the elliptical. No knee or back soreness at all.
