Allof us want to get in a sweaty workout and feel like we did our best,but sometimes, weak joints get in the way. Highimpact exercises are great for our hearts, but with physicalimpairments such as knee, ankle or back injuries, a lot of peoplecan’t do the jumps, runs, or jerky direction changes that otherscan. Here are moves that won’t sacrifice safety for intensity.
Startby standing with feet hip width apart and arms over head, thenpushing hips back and bending into a low squat position, place handson the floor and walk them out to a high plank. Then do a full pushup(or knee pushup depending on mobility). Then,walk your hands back to the squat and repeat for 45 seconds.
