Can anyone suggest a good workout on the easy level while I recover from knee surgery?

My dad had knee surgery and he still teaches martial arts. I know he used the stationary bicycle to build strength. He stretches every day. Swimming can be great if you can get to a pool. The one exercise that he credits most is this: bend your knees and place your hands on the tops of your patellas pushing them down gently. With your leg muscles raise your kneecaps up against the resistance of your hands. I find it easier to do it one leg at a time.

Thank you Chris S. I will try that resistance exercise.
