There are five ways to put less stress on your knees when you work out. First, you should consider trying stationary lunges. Moving lunges are tougher on your knees. When you do squats, you should try standing against a wall with a physio ball behind your back. Be careful about squatting too low or you risk putting too much pressure on your knees. Add a little more cushion underneath you when you’re doing your glute kickbacks. Adding more support with a thicker cushion or even a second pad will be more comfortable on your joints.

Also, take it easy at first with the number of repetitions that you do. If you’re doing burpees or box jumps, try just two sets of 10 burpees or two sets of 5 to 10 box jumps at first.
