Plus 3 alternatives you can do if these still hurt your knees
If you have been avoiding squats and lunges for a long time because they hurt your knees, I hope this will inspire you that you can change that.
Yes, your knees can be strong and healthy! You just need to start small and stay focused on that goal.
Knee Strengthening Moves
The number of reps will vary based on the user. It depends on the strength and condition of your knees.
Some users will feel fatigue after just 5 reps or so and others will need upwards of 20 to 30 reps. Pay close attention to how your knees are feeling and listen to your body.
I recommend repeating each of the 3 exercises for 3 sets each, then resting the next day to allow repair and recovery. Ideally you should do this at least 3x per week to have noticeable results.
These 3 are perfect for working your legs and booty even if you have an active knee injury and cannot bend your knees at all.
Once your knees get strong and healthy you can enjoy all of the advanced versions of every exercise in my Tone @Home Program.
