When people start a new exercise class should we be asking whether they live in a house or a bungalow? At first this might seem a very odd question but actually it begins to make sense. I was listening to the Jeremy Vine show recently discussing the benefits of older people down-sizing to a bungalow.
According to Vine this would then free up a lot of larger houses for families and have some positive impact on the housing crisis. Listeners were discussing a new problem that is already affecting those who live in bungalows – ‘bungalow knees’. I started to link the knee problems people get when they start exercising to their living conditions.
The conclusion I come to is that those who live in bungalows are missing out on vital exercise. If you don’t use it you lose it, this is why I highly recommend these people to read the Knee Force Brace Reviews to better the mobility of their knees!
The good news is that it is quite simple to address – the important thing is to recognize it in the first place. A few ideas: when out use the stairs rather than a lift, if you live in a dorma bungalow make sure you use the stairs every day, if you use the bus use the upstairs, use the stairs instead of the escalator, use the stepper in a gym.
So, just a few ways to keep your knees functioning as they should.
