Strong legs and knees are important for good balance; walking; using stairs; joint flexibility; reducing risk of pain, falls, injury and arthritis; and being able to remain physically active and mobile. If standing exercises like squats and lunges aren’t for you, try these 5 seated exercises for your knees and legs. Start with 8 repetitions on each leg, or whatever you can do, and work your way up to more. Exercise daily if possible.
See my video demonstrating the exercises on Facebook and Instagram at @BlueCrossNC and @MRhealthyliving.

Important note: If you are experiencing pain or recovering from a medical procedure or injury, do NOT exercise until you have consulted with your medical care provider or physical therapist.
