So about three months ago I had ACL reconstruction surgery and now that I can walk I’m back on track to losing weight. However, due to my recovery I can’t do a lot of the things I used to do ((anything medium-high impact on your knees)) I do a lot of biking, but that doesn’t help me tone much. Do you have any suggestions on what I can do to keep working out, but not harm my knee?

I would think biking has a lot of impact on the knees, but if the doctor said it’s ok then you could definitely do swimming as well. It works great if you want to lose weight. In fact, it’s the only sport where every muscle on your body is put to work.

Also, you could do most exercises for abs, arms and back along with leg lifts in different positions.

Your situations doesn’t restrain you from exercising as much as you might think, as long as you avoid lifting heavy weights, running and jumping.
