The Best Cardio Exercises for Losing Weight with Bad Knees: Full 10-Minute Home Workout


Good news: You don’t have to do high impact moves like running, squat jumps or burpees to shed pounds! In addition to walking, there are some great low impact, multi muscle moves that you can do that can be more gentle on your knee joints but still help you burn plenty of calories.

In this quick workout I’ll show you some of my favorite, simple ways to mix up your low impact, indoor cardio workout. The best part is that these moves that use minimal space and zero equipment (that’s right, no treadmill required!).

And of course, it’s important to note that weight loss comes from creating a caloric deficit, so sure to pair your workouts with a healthy diet that is under your daily calorie needs in order to shed pounds effectively. A great formula I recommend for weight loss is to consume 250 calories less and burn 250 extra calories per day.

Level: Beginner/Intermediate

Equipment: None

Intensity: Moderate

Please note: If you are working with a specific knee injury, be sure to get your doctor and/or physical therapist’s approval before attempting this workout. If you suffer from knee pain regularly, be sure to consult a professional for an expert diagnosis.

This workout features moves that help to burn calories, burn fat, build aerobic endurance and coordination as well as work the muscles in the hips, thighs, glutes, shins, arms, shoulders and core with exercises like:

Walking in place
Lateral Steps
High Knee Marching
Knee Lifts with Opposite Arm Overhead Reach
Low Impact Jumping Jacks
Cross Over Kicks
Heel Digs
