Cardio Boxing

Cardio Boxing

Need something new?  Tired of walking and riding the bike?  Try cardio-boxing!

There are probably classes at your local gym or you can buy tapes or DVD’s.  These low-impact exercise routines will teach you basic moves without causing undue stress on your arthritic knees.  Cardio-boxing is a great way to strengthen muscles, increase balance and coordination, and lose weight, all without pounding on your knees.

You should start with a good warm up.  Gradually increase your heart rate and try working out for ten to twenty minutes.  There is no jumping.  Why not try it?  Exercise and weight loss are two of the best conservative treatments for knee osteoarthritis.
