Default Working out with weight/ bad knee support, please?

I usually do aerobics, but I seriouly need a change. Some of my aerobic tapes have weight training in them, but I just want weights only workout. I have Joyce Vedral, but she does too many knee workouts... I have bad knees, not really bad knees but they hurt and I can't do squats... I have gained some weight back, and as well middle age spread set in.. Does anyone know of a weight training tape for all over, but is sensative to people with knee pains?


I need help.

Hi Swan,

Actually you might want to invest in a personal trainer for a few sessions. My mom was obese when she started her weight training regiment and her trainer gave her a ton of excellent training tips (she had problems with her knees and kneeling).

Unfortunately with the tapes out there they are one size fits all kind of thing.

Just a suggestion (though find a trainer that is experienced in dealing with people with knee problems. A physiotherapist might be able to suggest one).

Take care and good luck (I am also glad you're looking into weight training, it rules!)

Ali

Unfortunately, I can't afford a personal trainer... You are right, though... Most of those videos are one size fits all...

Well, I'll just try to use the 20 minute workouts and pray to get my act together...
