What are ten exercises people with joint problems can do to lose weight and keep fit?
Depends on what you mean by joint problems really..? Degenerative changes (OA or DJD) in the knee-, hip-, sacroiliac- or lumbar joints perhaps?
Good non-stressing exercise would be swimming, pilates, yoga, redcord training, subtle horseback riding, crosscountry skiing, stability training, mat exercises, aqua-training and cycling; all of which place almost no stress on the joints in question.
Stability training for stomach and back would also be heavilly recommended as a supplement to this type of exercise i.e. training on a exercise ball, bird-dog exercise and 'the bridge'.
All the best,
Alex (D C. Mchiro).
I've had both hips replaced and am still limping a bit, but I walk, cycle on a recumbent bike, do pool aerobics, as well as stretching, moderate weight training, and tai chi.
Swimming, because the buoyancy of the water makes it a low impact on the joints. And it exercises almost all the muscle groups.
I think the best thing is walking or just getting in the pool and walking in there. Also when washing up just do a few squats while holding onto the sink, when sitting in a chair just gently lifting your legs one at a time for 6 reps on each leg. Anything like that is good because you just need movement it doesn't have to be much.
