[quote=Charles Bennington;418424]Killer Barbara. You're doing so well man. How's the knee feeling lately?[/quote]

Thanks, Chuck! Knee feels pretty good, especially on squats done with proper form. Almost no ill sensation whatsoever. Versa climber and stair master help it to track better too. I go for the first of my new PT sessions tomorrow, so well see how the physiology goes.... (did I say that right?).

I like seeing you get after it. 6 rds. of 20 is strong. Was your honey watching with you?

Thanks. And yup, she was. Actually, it was a good PBS show on the history of Krakatoa.

GTG for push-ups...smart man. I should try that. I'm progressing with my pull-ups, but have made absolutely no improvement in my push-ups. Thanks for the great idea!!

Nancy,

You're too kind, but I can't take credit for coming up with the push-up GTG. Saw it somewhere early on and said to myself; "Self, you need to be doing that!" My push-ups are coming [I]S L O W L Y[/I], but unfortunately, it's always been harder for me than pull-ups. I'll hit a point with the pull-ups and then take off (at least, I did when I was younger), but the push-ups have always sucked!

[I]REST DAY!

Physical Therapy, Session 1 for Right Knee.
[/I][/B]
Well.......I learned today that I don't really have a muscle imbalance between my VMO and vastus lateralis (inside and outside quad muscles), but rather a markedly weaker right hip flexor / adductor - - it's probably only half as strong as my left hip. This is causing the knee cap to track to the outside of its lateral range and the VMO "tilts" the knee cap as it contracts and the knee straightens. Sooooooo, we'll see what a month of PT will do for starters.

Good luck with the PT. I did homemade PT with an Egoscue book a while back and was amazed how quickly it helped. Good PT is awesome.

Thank you, Chris! I don't know how well I'd fair if I tried PT like you did - - I tend to overdue and am not very disciplined with things.

Knee is rather angry today, so I took it rather easy.

Glad to see you're in PT! It's working for me!! :)
