HELP KNEE INJURY! Ab/upper body workout tips

ShinySkyShaymin1994ShinySkyShaymin1994 Posts: 83Member Member Posts: 83Member Member
I just suffered a knee injury and was diagnosed today with Bursitis my doctor said I can still work out my upper body but NO LOWER BODY WORKOUTS. I just started a 30 challenge with a exercise group I am in and I want to prove to myself I can win this challenge but not injure myself further are there any work out routines I can do that won't put stress on my knees? I won't take no for an answer and I am winning this challenge. I tried doing some of my own research but a lot of exercises involve me bending my knee and idk if that's safe for me when I have Bursitis

e.g and some is obviously out of the question for me to do

10 crunches
10 bicycle crunches
10 mountain climbers
10 Side V-ups
10 Dynamic planks
10 knee touches
10 toe touches
10 leg lifts
10 crunch claps

    What did the doc say? I know you want to win, but your long term knee health is the upmost important thing here.
    What's the 30 challenge? Loose weight, get stronger, muscle mass gained?
