I have noticed in the past several years as both my age and weight have increased that my hips start complaining after even a short walk (5 minutes). As soon as I stop walking for about 10 seconds, the discomfort goes away and I can continue walking a bit more. Also, I have increasingly become aware of my knees as I go up and down stairs. They kind of lock up from time to time.
Hopefully as my weight decreases, the hips and knees will be under less stress and this problem will go away but in the meantime does anyone have suggestions for exercises or activities that are both kind and beneficial to these joints?
Thanks for your help!
