Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread
I'm after some advise for exercises to lose weight and to just generally get into shape. Due to a pain that i get in my knees i've had no luck finding any kind of exercise that i can do regularly. In the past i've bought an exercise bike, a cross trainer and twist steppers, and had to sell them all because i just couldn't use them due to my knees.
I'm really unfit, and whilst i've always been very unhappy about it, due to my knees i've just had to put up with it, but i'm at a point now that i'm really sick of it and want to get into shape. Also my son's nearing the age where i'd really like to be able to take him to the park and kick a ball about and stuff.
I don't really need advice on muscle toning and the like, what i'm after is suggestions for low impact exercises that can aid weight loss (with a healthy diet of course).
EDIT: Actually low impact isn't what i really mean, rather something that wouldn't require constant bending at the knees.
