I've been looking around to see if there are any videos out there that don't involve too much "jumping" or "Twisting"??? I injured my knee in May and have tried really hard not to let that stop me exercising, but unfortunately...
As for the injury: I'm pretty sure it is "loose back of the knee muscles"-- When I took my Roller Skating fall, I felt weirdness (to put it in non-gross language!) in the back of my knee-- The doctor thought it was a patella thing, but now, even when I do back-leg-extensions (on all fours, extend leg behind to straight, then bring back in) I feel the back of my knee "catch".. If that makes sense
Dunno if that was relevant, but I thought it might be nice to add that in there, in case someone else has an injury or condition similar to mine!
So-- Basically any standing twists, any hopping, any pivoting... all out of the question. It's AMAZING what stress we put on our knees!!!
Thing is-- I'm pretty fit, cardiovascularly, because I dance (weirdly enough, jumping like crazy in Irish Dance doesn't affect my knee at all...
) So I need something that will make me SWEAT and get a good cardio workout!!
Anyone have any suggestions? I'm getting desperate to MOVE!!
