Plus Size Fitness: Squats with Bad Knees? Let’s Do it!

March 17 2014 | CeCe Olisa

When I went home for Christmas in December, I was walking a few paces ahead of my sisters.

“Ummmm where did THAT come from?” I heard, one of them say. I turned around and saw both of them staring at my bum.

Both of my sisters have great backsides, while I hold it down in the boobs department.

I know I’ll never catch up to them but I’ve been doing the best with what I have and apparently its working and I’m a little less Sponge Bob Square @$$ than I was before!

A big part of toning up my derrière has come with learning that I can do squats without trashing my knees. So, I asked my trainer/friend Robbie to help me make a tutorial on how to do squats with bad knees.

Check it out below and if you’d like us to shoot any other plus size fitness tutorials, let me know what you need help with in the comments below!

    Awesome. I am always frustrated that I can’t do real squats without throwing out my knee — then I’m out for a few weeks. I’ve been doing shallow ones which help with leg strength but don’t really work the butt. I have the ball, all I need is to find a wall with nothing on it. LOL Thanks!

    You need to look into Wide Squats or Sumo Squats which take the pressure off the knee joints. I was a thrower in college and have very bad knees but I still am able to do the exercise because of the Sumo Squats.

    That was awesome! Thank you so much for that tip. I have very bad knees and was still trying to do squats in what I thought was the right way and it really hurt. This is so much better: no pain, and I really feel it in my butt and thighs. I’m so happy I found this video. xoxoxo!
