MessageSujet: Exercise Equipment for Bad Knees   Sam 20 Aoû - 10:54

Are you someone like me, who suffers from bad knees? The 'bad knee' syndrome affected me because of not doing the exercises, as they are expected to be done. Now other than bad knees hampering my work schedule, I have another problem at hand. The problem is that I find it difficult to workout using different equipments in the gyms. There are different reasons, why a person suffers from bad knees. It can be because of a knee injury, or a knee surgery as well. Doing high impact exercises often does more harm than good. Same is the case with using certain exercise machines. Therefore, it is important that one knows, which are the right exercise equipment for bad knees, so that the condition is not aggravated, yet the fitness goals are achieved.

Shoes: If walking is the exercise you have chosen, then it is imperative that you have the right shoes. Not often do people pay attention to the shoes they wear. When one is choosing the shoes, the price tag of the shoes or the brand of the shoes is not important, but it is the comfort of the shoes that is important. Along with comfort, they should also be able to protect the damaged knees from any further damage. While buying the shoes, make it clear to the sales person the purpose of buying the shoes and also state the problem that you have at hand. This will ensure that the sales person gives you the right shoes and you can work out without any problems to the knees.

Elliptical Machine: The best exercise equipment for bad knees are the elliptical machine. It gives a low impact full body workout. They are not only suitable for young people, but also for old and people with weak knees. The motions performed with an elliptical trainer is a cross between biking and running. Along with great cardio exercise for bad knees, it also works the arms well. Hence, a workout with the elliptical trainer is said to be a all around workout.

Stationary Cycle: Like the elliptical machine, the stationary cycle is also one of the good exercise machines for bad knees. Bicycling also puts less strain on the knees. The strain is placed on the muscles in the legs as opposed to in the knees. If the knee problem is severe, then it is best to opt for a stationary cycle, as less impact is placed on the knees and the tension of the cycle can be adjusted. Same is not the case with the actual bike. If one would want to opt for actual bike, then it is best to cycle on the flat terrain without any inclination.

Rowing Machine: There is an advantage of using the rowing machine is that, it not only gives a good cardiovascular exercise, but also good strength training exercise. It works the legs, arms and back, but at the same time, there is no pressure placed on the knees. However, if you suffer from any injuries to the shoulders, then it is best to consult your health care professional before you start with the exercise. It is best to adjust the resistance of the machine to suit your physical needs.

Stability Balls: One of the exercise equipment for bad knees is the stability ball. A number of strength training exercises can be done using the stability ball.

There are a number of exercises which can be done both for the lower as well as upper body.
