    Cardio alternatives to running?

    Hello Hive!

    I'm still rather new to talking in here; however, you guys all have been wonderful motivation. Some of you are following my check in on the ironborn workout and it's going well so far; however, I wanted to see if there may be some guidance I may be able to get with cardio. I'm lacking in the cardio department and I have an old knee injury that makes running a bit difficult on me after prolonged periods of time. I want to get started on some cardio or hiit program; however, avoiding running if possible.

    Would anyone be able to recommend cardio alternatives I might be able to do after hitting weights?

    Thank you in advance!
    If this is the incorrect place to put this I apologize.

    I think Cardio Trim is a program designed as alternative to running, did you check that?

      This is the right place to ask! There are lots of programs at all levels focusing on cardio without running, you can have a look here and see what appeals. Also remember, if there are moves that come up in a program that you don't want to do because of impact or whatever, it's perfectly fine to substitute in something else. Some suggestions are in the exercise alternatives but there are plenty of other possibilities too. Also, there's walking or using cardio equipment if you have access to it.

        Although there are no specific programs for it here: how about cycling?

          You might check out the cardio go program.

          Also I have been following your check in thread and was going to mention there that if you are motivated by badges and such there is a 15 consecutive days of exercise one waiting for you to claim it.

            Combat workouts are also a good cardio alternative. Boxing workouts are easy on the knees.

              Thank you all so much for the feedback!! You're all wonderful. <3

              I actually like the combat idea quite a bit too and cycling sounds like a great alternative too.
              I will probably do those!

                Careful with the cycling; it's only knee-friendly if your bike fits you well, otherwise you have to go slow to keep it joint-saving.

                Once swimming halls are open again you can always go swimming again.

                If you have the space: Ebay often has cheap used cross trainers, which are much nicer to the knees than a treadmill.

                  This's a thread I've found interesting a time ago and, in fact, it's still. Some exercises imply jumps but anyway, I'm sure there you can get a good idea how to solve the question of the title.

                    Thank you everybody!
                    I really appreciate all the feedback! I'm going to add some extras from some cardio exercises and some suggestions provided.
                    You're all the best!

                    Also, I didn't even think of checking e-bay for a crosstrainer! Thank you!
