Hi, I hurt my knee yesterday playing soccer and now i probally wont be able to run or do anything that puts pressure to my right leg/knee. I was wondering if you knew any other cardio exercises or ways to burn fat. Thank you!!

During that time, make sure your diet is spot on, especially with the lack of cardio. Perhaps adjust it slightly, decrease your calories while injured, this will help in any unwanted body fat created.

Also, i find the elliptical or style machine like it is easier on the knees. Could try that out as well. Something that glides more than puts pressure on your legs.

best of luck in recovering!

A Rowing Machine may work, but it still puts pressure on the knees. Swimming is your best bet for sure

You may want to try something like an elliptical machine or a stationary bike--those make be good options for putting less stress on your knees. Swimming is good, as another person mentioned. Or you could try walking on an treadmill with an incline. I'm assuming you can put weight on it, just not any impacting force.
