Low Impact Exercises For Women With PCOS

Low Impact Exercises For Women With PCOS

Having PCOS often means having an ongoing battle with balancing weight and fitness. Weight gain is a common symptom of PCOS, so it’s something many women look to gain control over, and work on over time.

There are many methods of exercising, but many involve high-impact cardio exercises which can be a little difficult for beginners, or for people holding more weight.

Exercising at home can be difficult, but it is possible, and there are some wonderful (and powerful) low-impact exercise that can help you begin your fitness journey and start getting towards your ideal weight.

Squats With Weights

The idea here is to go into a deep squat and then as you come up, push up with your arm weights, or do a bicep curl. It exercises your legs, your core and your arms, so it’s a great all-rounder.

Ski Move

These look like a sideways lunge, and works by pushing one leg back behind the other in a skiing motion. When you bring to back to the front, do the same but with the other leg. You can add an extra challenge by doing a bicep curl with weights at the same time.

“Pretend” Skipping

Jumping is a great fat burner - but jumping with a real skipping rope can be high-impact on your ankles and knees. If you do ‘pretend skipping’ you’re doing much lower / smaller jumper - staying closer to the ground. It helps to also make the arm movements you’d make with a skipping rope too.

Punching / Boxing

Punching is a wonderful cardio exercise, especially if you can punch whilst in a deep squat. This will test your leg muscles, and also keep your arms toned and active too. Punching is great for keeping your heart rate up, and burning calories.
