This^^Absolutely. Old age sucks.
I can’t do near the weights I used to do.
I focus more on time under tension.
i think mine are fuckedHow are your feet?
You got good arches? or you kinda flat footed?
i have pancake flat feet and got $$$ insoles and i went from severe knee/ankle pain (like hurt to walk) to ZERO pain.
i dont stand on my feet anymore w out my insoles.
Hard to answer that question. Might help to give more info: When do your knees hurt? What type of pain? Only leg exercises? Which ones? As already mentioned, have you looked at ankle mobility or hip mobility? Past knee injuries? Surgeries? What's your age?I wrap them to stay tight and warm, use motrin. Anyone have this problem?
Both knees hurt all workout but not post or during the regular day.They are 10 times worse once it gets cold. I wrap them, warm up but every year, it's worse. Wasn't sure if they made heated wraps or you guys used a medication protocol 1-2 hours before lifting. I do legs every 5 days and either squat or hack squat. I'm 51 and what worked last year isn't working this year. Thanks for the advices so far and anymore that comes. It's depressing......
Yes! I have arthritis in my knees and wrapping them actually makes the pain worse. The reason being is the wraps cause the knee cap to compress the meniscus and articular cartilage. If you do leg extensions keep reps between 20-30. Also don’t allow your knees to travel forward toward your toes during ALL compound movements. This targets the glutes harder and helps take some pressure off the knees. Don’t go below 12 reps on compound exercises. It’s hard unless you are in great cardio shape. Also, don’t train to failure on any quad movement.I wrap them to stay tight and warm, use motrin. Anyone have this problem?
What brand?Someone mentioned Hyaluronic acid in another thread about joint supplements.
I started taking it and within a day I noticed I had less pain in my knees. Usually I have pain sitting down and standing up. Not sure if it's a coincidence or not. Will know more after I work legs tomorrow.
