Hi everyone! I'm really excited to jumpstart my weight loss again by increasing my physical activity. However, I struggle with anything involving jumping, running or too much bending as my right knee always hurts. Usually after vigorous activity, it is very sore and sometimes hard to walk on. I don't know if this is common when working parts of the knee that maybe aren't strong enough, but does anyone have any advice? Thank you so much!

You may have an unstable joint and you ought to use joint supporters while you do your physical exercises. But then again you really need to consult a physician. Good luck!

A workout that might be some use for calfs could be: Stand up, tiptoe up then lower, up, lower, repeat. I don't know if adding dumbbell weight, (or any other weight) hurts your knee, but that could be better.
