Bridalicious Boot Camp

Workout for bad knees?

I've been looking to try this video, but I did 30 day shred, and it killed my knees. Squats and lunges seem to be out for me. Is this a good workout for that? Any tips on what to do if you are in that position?

    Hi orangehills. Sorry about your knees, but you're right, the Bridalicious DVDs have a lot of high impact exercises that would def not be good for someone with knee issues.

    Lunges and squats are two of the most fundamental lower body movements and it's a challenge to work around them. You might want to try something like water aerobics. This minimizes the impact on the joints but can still be a way to burn a lot of calories.

  • Could alternate moves be done while doing these videos in place of lunges?  Squats aren't a problem but I also have bad knees, so lunges are a problem..  I JUST got the videos (like this morning) and have been looking forward to amping up my workouts from EA Sports Active 2 for Wii with them...  Now, I'm a little concerned.
