Right now I have a very sedentary lifestyle and I am VERY overweight. If I stand for more than 1.5 hours my knees and feet ache for the rest of the day. I start to have back problems after about 2 hours.
I'm going to a music festival in July and I want to be able to enjoy it and not just leave after 3 hours because of my knees and feet like I did in the past (when I was 40 pounds lighter!.)
I know that losing weight is probably the biggest thing that would help but I can't lose 100 lbs by July so are there any exercises that would help in the task of just being able to stand? I'm going to get a treadmill so I can "reintroduce" myself to walking for long periods of time.
Are there any strength training exercises I can do? I have some resistance bands and light dumbells but I don't think I can afford a gym. Would the knee strengthing exercises in the sticky on this forum help?
As you can see I'm totally lost as to what to do.
