    Keep Your Knees Healthy as You Age👍

    Strengthen your upper and lower leg muscles.

    Stretch those same leg muscles to support your full range of motion.

    Maintain a recommended weight.

    Choose low-impact exercises to protect the cartilage in your knees.

    See a medical provider right away if you have a swollen knee.

  • Mingye Deng says:

    This could be a nice morning workout! Thank you and love you Joanna. I love your strength training videos as well!!!

  • Nicki James says:

    Thanks for this video 👌🏻 I’m not a beginner and was doing hiit cardio and your body strength workouts and abs/cardio, but because of a knee strain nearly 5 weeks ago, I’m unable to do all the jumps etc atm, so have had to slow everything down, which has been frustrating tbh. Do knee strains get better? I hope I can get back to the HiiT soon but I did think I’d be better by now, tho I’ve not had any physio 🤷🏼‍♀️

  • Siux Sie says:

    I’d love to see more hiit no jumping workouts, not so low impact… Thanx for everything!!! 🇲🇽😊🤗💗💟🥑🖤💜💚❤️💖☔

  • VideoTzar19 says:

    Thanks for this. I popped my left knee something awful recently from an old injury and it has made working out a bit challenging. It’s hard to find true low impact workouts because at some point they always have some sort of lunge or squat, even if they are knee friendly. Found some chair workouts but I still want to do some standing workouts that I can move my knee in a safe way so I don’t loose too much of the progress I’ve made while waiting to recover.
