Re: {TKA} Total Knee Arthroplasty

Pete,

I had a total knee replacement 18 months ago (230 bw, 6'3") and I have been enjoying the ability to do crossfit because of the new knee. The big question is what kind of lifts and weights can I do without sacrificing the longevity of the knee.

Out: box jumps, broad jumps, squat jumps, skipping rope.

I have do jump for a bar and then let myself down easy as one substitute.

I am cool with lower weights and higher reps - I'd like to hear how you determined how much activity and weight is safe.
