Working out during the pandemic with an injury was not easy.  And finding that menopause has changed my metabolism...and therefore, changed my body...has not been easy.  I need to boost my metabolism.  I am back at the gym and finding ways not to injure myself again.  (Herniated discs)  I need suggestions to working out and stepping up my metabolism.

I would like suggestions on how to prevent sore knees post workout.

I’m a figure skater, so I do veryyyyy high impact workouts over 3 hours long every day. It’s very hard on my lower back/hips/knees/ankles, and I’m hoping for some directions on strength exercises that don’t put extra strain on my joints, as well as aren’t too intense on the cardio since I have several chronic illnesses that would make adding on more to what I’m doing every day detrimental to my health until I can work up to it fully (a months-long process).

I've had two open heart surgeries.  The last one was for two aortic aneurysms and two valve replacements.  I cannot over exert myself as I have another heart issue going on at this time.  I can do light activity.  Can I do this?  My last surgery was 18 months ago.
