In this post, I show you how to lose weight with a knee injury.
Don’t worry, it would be as easy and as painful as possible.
Managing Knee injury during weight Loss
Life is not a bed of roses, sometimes we find out about this fact in an unprecedented way and end up with a bad knee.
The good news we have here is that you have a knee injury, not a back injury.
If you had a back injury, losing weight would have been a whole lot harder.
To manage your knee, you have to be careful not to injure the knee again:
- Never overtrain, and damage the knee more
- Avoid stressful people and environment
Lose weight with Bad knee
An artist can paint because he understands how to balance colors to create a painting.
On the other hand, I understand how to help people sculpt their physic because I understand how to balance their daily workouts and diets.
After doing the necessary calculations, I came up with the ideal plan to help all manners of people with bad knees lose weight.
When trying to lose weight with a knee injury, you need to do just six things:
- Bench Leg raise
- ‘Water flush
- VegCspice smoothie
- Good diet
- Stop sucking in your stomach to look fit.
Below expatiate on the points, I listed above.
To me, swimming is the best workout in the entire world.
No workout even comes close, to target the different muscle groups in the body, as swimming does.
Fortunately, despite the fact that it targets all muscles in the body, it is also the least strenuous on the joints and ligaments.
On average an hour of swimming burns up to 540 calories, depending on the weight and stature of the said person.
As such, swimming is recommended to keep injured athletes fit in the sports world.
You can also, take advantage of this activity and stop complaining about having a bad knee.
2. Bench Leg raise
The second exercise most injured people can engage in is the bench leg raise.
The bench leg raise is notorious for targeting all abdominal muscles in the body to give a stronger core.
It perfect in situations where you have a knee injury simply because of the fact that the legs are not engaged during any stage of the exercise.
Yet it works out all the muscles of the front and side abdominal muscles, and most importantly, the back muscles.
3. Water Flush
The water flush is a technique of consuming large quantities of water three times daily to cleanse the bowels and flush out toxic waste products from it.
- The first thing you do within 5 minutes of waking up is to consume 1.5 liters of room temperature water.
- In the afternoon, you consume another 1.5 liters of water.
- Finally, in the evening, you consume the final 1.5 liters of water.
The water is not drunk to hydrate the body but to flush all waste products out of it.
4. VegCspice smoothie
The vegCspice is basically a smoothie blend made from Vegetables, Citrus, coffee, and spices.
Honey is sometimes added to the mix to sweeten it and make it more palatable.
When used in combination with the water flush, it is known to cause a weight loss of at least 30 pounds.
5. Good Diet
As I always say, we have 6 classes of food:
- Fats & oils
These six classes of food must coexist in harmony, like the rainbow, to bring beauty to the body of humans.
You should eat more proteins in your quest to lose weight, and reduce the amount of carb (carbohydrate) you consume.
6. Stop Sucking in Your Stomach
Sucking in your stomach is a stress response of the body.
This is common in both nature, for preys to freeze in place, when in the vicinity of a predator.
In the same vein, when a human is stressed out, the freeze by sucking in their stomachs.
The problem here is that some people have gotten so used to this act that they freeze at the slightest provocation.
This is bad, as sucking in your stomach is bad:
- It prevents you from breathing air, which helps in burning food in the body, which causes the body to store those foods, which causes fat.
- The digestive system is rearranged, by the sucking in motion, which in turn leads to bloating and constipation.
Instead of sucking in your stomach, learn how to lean on your obliques, because this is the stack difference between lean people and fat people.
