I have terrible, terrible knees and ankles. It's frustrating because I love running and would do it every day, but my legs just can't handle it. I tried spinning on a stationary bike, but even that seems to bother them! Swimming, unfortunately, is out of the question simply because I live nowhere near a body of water, and cannot afford to spend money on a gym membership or pool club membership.
Sorry if I'm whining, but I was wondering if any of you had suggestions for great highimpact cardio that is knee-friendly?
I currently lift, and do typical conditioning exercises (situps, crunches, pushups, pullups, teasers, leg lifts, ect) as well as pilates and yoga. These make me feel great, but sometimes I feel like they don't get my heart pumping as much as I'd like!
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, even if you don't have time or ideas to respond with!
