Knee Arthritis and Weightlifting.

Hey, I’m curious as to what you guys on here who have knee arthritis are able to do in the gym. Have you been able to squat and deadlift still? What modifications have you had to make? Also for cardio how about the indoor rowing machine?

Just wondering how you guys with knee arthritis are able to stay in shape (looking for ideas as to how to keep at it despite arthritis).

I have knee arthritis. I use knee wraps on “leg” days. My recommendation is to experiment and determine what aggravates the arthritis (then avoid it) For me, cutting on the knee really bothers it, so no more basketball.

In terms of cardio, using the bike is less traumatic on the knees than the treadmill. In term of supplements, fish oil and glucosamine also help.
