Exercising With Achy Knees

24 Jun

If you find it difficult to exercise because of knee osteoarthritis (OA), a water workout may be a good option. In a recent Finnish study of older women with mild knee (OA), those who took a 1-hour water workout class three times weekly for four months lost 2 1/2 pounds of body fat, increased their walking speed significantly, and became more physically active in daily life. A year later, they were still walking faster but had not maintained the fat loss.
