If you have Arthritis, what exercise should you not do?

If you have arthritis, there are certain exercises that you should avoid or modify to prevent worsening of the symptoms. Here are some examples:

High-impact exercises: High-impact exercises such as running, jumping, or plyometrics can put excessive stress on the joints and cause pain and inflammation. It's best to avoid these types of exercises if you have arthritis, especially in the knees, hips, and ankles.

Exercises that involve twisting or bending: Exercises that involve twisting or bending the joints, such as deep squats or sit-ups, can also exacerbate arthritis symptoms. It's best to modify these exercises or avoid them altogether.

Repetitive exercises: Repetitive exercises such as running or cycling for long periods of time can cause overuse injuries and exacerbate arthritis symptoms. It's important to vary your exercises and avoid doing the same type of exercise for extended periods of time.

Exercises that require gripping or grasping: Exercises that require gripping or grasping such as heavy lifting or weightlifting can cause pain and inflammation in the joints of the hands and wrists. It's best to modify these exercises or avoid them altogether if you have arthritis in those joints.
