I have constant knee pain from a long standing ballet injury I still want to workout what workouts can you recommend on here

  • I cannot bend my knee a lot without it hurting sometimes even a simple squat or lunge is unbarable but working out is part of my routine so I need a workout that can work with my knee pain

    Perhaps some basic yoga (easy class, short duration) with modifications and using props such as blocks and blankets to support your knee. Whilst there are easy classes on this site there are not a lot of modifications so I would advise finding a class that suits your comfort, learning the name of the pose and then looking online for any modifications. Better still, supplement your classes on here by attending a remedial yoga class and after a while, modifying your poses will come instinctively to you and your body. Hope that helps :)

      Agree with Jayne. Also, not on DB, but swimming / water aerobics class with modifications may work as well. If it hurts, don't do it.

    I would caution you to be careful with the yoga and do tons of modifications because this is not a beginners program even though it is labeled that way. I did the first three days then switched to another program cause I actually felt the workouts were dangerous to me personally and my level of yoga experience.

      I'm glad it's not just me thinking that! I trained as a yoga teacher many moons ago, but haven't practiced in years. I am now on Day 5 of the yoga programme and at best would consider it intermediate. In some places it's advanced. The only way you could reach that level, especially before you became disheartened, is to consistently repeat the earlier easier classes. For beginners and remedial pupils I would always advise additional hands on teaching to prevent bad habits and injury. Yoga, when done well, is exceptionally restorative and becomes not just an exercise programme but a peaceful way of life. Yoga was part of a programme that returned me to health after a very long illness.

      Good luck with it!

      I actually do the restorative yoga class they have on here once or twice a week. It is much more beginner friendly and leaves me feeling relaxed and stretched out instead of tired and in pain like the main yoga program. There are a few yoga programs you can find with discover that are in my opinion better suited for beginners or part time yogi's.

    I'm recovering from a knee injury and have found that most of the videos have modifications that I can do that keeps my knee from hurting.

      I'm going through the Intelliburn program. I would like to try Inferno but there is too much impact for my condition.
      Today I did Tactical Cardio. There are squats and lunges but you only have to do them to your comfort level. I did Complete Kettlebell the other days and was able to modify those.
      I haven't had anything come up that I wasn't able to get a good workout.
