Re: Knee-Safe WODs

Hi Cal. I'm sorry to hear your knee is getting worse. Hopefully you're getting good advice from the experts about rehab/recovery. Good luck to you.

Re: Knee-Safe WODs

I have downloaded the knee-safe workouts and THANK YOU all, very much. What a great tool this forum is!

It is good to know that it is not just my age, but that others suffer the same setbacks and complications as I. Not that I wish unfavorably upon anyone, but I love company, wherever I am.

When my immediate surgery pain has subsided, I will be using light loads and no jumping to increase bloodflow and promote healing. I, like Aileen, believe strongly in the body's power to heal, but we need to let it, not force it. That is what I think.

Anyway, thanks to all!

And thanks, especially to Wade for the time and very helpful effort.

Re: Knee-Safe WODs

Wade - What a great idea. I have a knee condition which brought me to crossfit from triathlon in the first place.

Now I can't do anything impactive (run/jump/skip etc) or squat. Back extensions are featuring heavily in my training as I see they are in your WODs.

When I get a GHD machine Glute Ham Raises will basically take over where squats left off. My knee surgeon recommended working on my hamstrings so happy days..

Thanks Again

James
