Default Any cardio suggestions for an injured knee - 10-06-2011, 02:12 PM

I injured my knee at jiu-jitsu last saturday and I am still feeling the effects!!
Hoping and praying its not a torn meniscus, like the doc thinks it could be...

In the meantime, I've been in the gym 3 times this week. All weight/band work trying to keep myself from going insane.

My question is...are there any cardio exercises you guys can think of that utilize only one leg? Or...any ideas how I can still acheive some sort of jump in my heart rate to help stimulate weight loss?

Might be walking around the house in my "fat suit" (sauna suit) soon

Sauna sessions or elliptical work should work very well for you. The elliptical requires very slight joint incorporation because it has basically zero impact, and you can incorporate your arms to "spot" the leg that needs help. Try it out and let us know how it goes!


My whipped ice dairy drink brings the attention of many males to my place of residence and/ or employment, and they declare that its quality far surpasses that of yours. Absolutely, it far surpasses yours. I could convey to you the recipe, but i would have to demand compensation.

If it dosent bother your lifting I would suggest some upper body circuit training. I like to get put a light weight on two bars and bent over row,switch to bench press for super high reps trying not to take any rests at all. Do that until your beat to oblivion...it's fun
