#1 Exercise To Protect Your Knees
What’s the best way to keep your knees going strong through the years?
It’s simple…a squat routine three days a week.
If you’re new two exercise, start with 8 squats per routine. As you get stronger, you can build how many squats you perform.
Because strong quads help protect the knee joint, the stronger your quads are, the less chance you have for developing knee arthritis.
Remember, it’s less about WHAT you do that makes a difference in your fitness routine as you age, and more about HOW you do it. So today, I’ll show you a 2-min video of how to do a perfect squat!

What if you already have knee osteoarthritis? Will squats help or hurt?
Hi Sandi – If you already have arthritis, you need to proceed with caution, and it’s best to check with your doctor. Make sure your knees are tracking over your toes. A good suggestion will be to start with the chair squat….you can see a sample of this in the video in this blog.
