Knee exercises for arthritis #5

Iron chair – Hard level

Can be done anywhere.

No equipment needed.How To Make a Squat. Muscular man showing a squat exercise, side view, step by step.  Full length studio shot isolated on white.


  1. Stand straight, feet shoulder width apart and turned slightly outwards.
  2. Engage both your bum and stomach then lower yourself in to the squat position.
  3. Whilst lowering raise both arms out in front of you so they are parallel to the floor.
  4. Try to lower so your thighs are also parallel to the floor, then hold position.
  5. Repeat.

Again due to arthritis in my ankle my heel will start to raise off the floor during lowering in to the squat position, you should be able to keep yours flat though.

  1. These are all great exercises – even if you don’t have arthritis! I at least used to do squats very often, and find them to also be great for your thighs, calves, and back too.

    1. Hi Christen thanks for reading and commenting!

      Yeah squats can be a great exercise to do for the whole leg. I struggle to do them properly due to my ankle being stiff but I still try to give it a good go ???
