At Arne Wellness Center, we see all sorts of different injuries and ailments that are sports-based or exercise-based every single day. A common question we get is “What kind of exercises are there that are not stressful on your joints?” Which is a great question, here are some exercises you can do that both burn calories and take it easy on your joints.
If you do not have access to a lake, go down to your gym and try to do a quick workout on the row machine. It is a low impact exercise that is easy on your joints, but it is great for overall body strength and for cardio improvement. If you have never used a rowing machine, we suggest you talk to the trainers at your gym or do your research before you sit down at one of these machines on your own.
This is a great one for Coloradans. The bike supports your weight so it is less stressful on your joints in comparison to running, and once you have trained a little, it allows you to go farther than any other workout and see the beautiful mountains in our lovely state. If you do not have a bike, try a session or two at your gym and see how your joints feel.
Most people do not think of walking when they think of getting a workout in, but the reality is, it is a fat-burning workout that does not stress your joints when done effectively.
