Hey, can you help me? Are there any workouts for legs, (especially thighs) with minimal impact on my knees (have health problems) ?
Something doesn't like squats and jumps maybe...

I also have knee problem coz it twists with jerks. Download an app called "Fitivity: Knee Stabilization". The name might differ but it helps to stablize your knees. Also, use knee caps for support. But as far as legs exercises are concerned, there aren't much. You you can do it improve your knee. All the best.

To take pressure from your knees do squats with knees BEHIND your toes. Also avoid wall sits, that's really bad for injured knees. I'm doing bridge pose instead - almost doing the same job but way better for the knees. Watch the angle their also though: avoid less than 90 degrees.

Doctors are good at telling you what you can and cannot do, especially if there is a injury or something going on! Good luck!

That's true, they don't want me to do any exercises, but I really want to... Since childhood I used to do sport. I haven't do sport for about 2 years. And now I want do at least not do hard exercises to make my legs and whole body better

I hate squats! And they definitely bother my knees. I try a dance/ballet approach..ankle weights or nothing, full leg extension standing: front, side, back. This will also give you a leaner, longer muscle. Also, veeeeery slow, controlled walking up stairs 2 at a time will build up your knees. The stronger your leg muscles and esp. quads get, the less your knees will have to work! Good luck, you're not alone.
