Taking Care of Your Knees

I read a great blog post today, “Baby Boomers, You Kneed your Knees” It talks about the drastic increase in knee replacement surgery, and what we can do to protect our knees. While the article is aimed at older adults, the advise is relevant for everyone:

— keep a healthy weight,
— warm up before exercise and cool down afterwards
— use proper form and equipment
— exercise on a consistent basis, preferably 30 minutes a day 5 days a week
— don’t increase exercise intensity more than 10% a week
— mix in cardio, strength training, and flexibility
