My client recently reinjured a knee that’s been problematic for a long time. It’s a severe sprain and her wedding is only 6 weeks away. She is bummed to say the least and desperate to continue to lose weight up until the big day. Once the swelling subsides I can have her on her feet but for the time being we will be seated for most of the workout. We will focus mostly on upper body and I could use ideas for either position (seated or standing) that will keep her heart rate elevated!!!
If you want to rebuild the knee slowly you can use a stationary bicycle which will not put as much pressure on the knees. Depends on the severity of the knee injury. I also recommend using a medicine ball. The client can lay on the medicine ball and so push ups or push themselves around using the arms only.
