Greetings. I am on the cusp of entering your world, and am looking for some advice as I begin my planning. I come from a world of triathlon, and can no longer participate due to knee issues.
I’m 45 years old, 6 foot, 230 pounds (was 178 before I had to quit running/triathlon). I am able to lift weights, however, and am structuring a gameplan. Hence my login name 180degrees; pretty opposite endeavor from my cardio world.
It seems as though nearly every leg routine includes leg extensions. This is one exercise my knees prohibit. What would most closely replicate this movement for that specific development?
The one upper body movement I cannot make due to shoulder issues is the incline press (poor swimming form for years took that toll). What might replicate the incline press?
Thank you for reading my long post!
