Good Evening,

I have searched your archives concerning an issue I have with my knees. I had a pretty extensive injury on my right knee, I had almost 30% of my cartilage sheered off and removed. The surgeon (a sports medicine specialist) did the work but has all but banned me from running can only run in preparation for a PT test or when necessary on the job). He also mentioned to stay away from full squats, etc. Now, after reading your various threads on this issue, I have a question: With proper form and technique, will I be able to accomplish this or should I stay completely away? I have been doing Crossfit for three weeks now, I do not have trouble with the air squats, but have all kinds of issues with the squats and weights (especially overhead squats). Any advice or some "replacement" exercises are welcome. Thanks much.

DR

Sean,
There is nothing wrong with air squats by themselves. If you'd like, you might try a light weighted vest (starting with only 2-4 pounds added).

There is new stuff going on all the time with stem cells and various other techniques in terms of regrowing tissue. Maybe that's someplace you'd like to look...

Since you're in Tucson, I can potentially help you in two ways--both medically (if you so desire) and/or at the upcoming facility. You may want to sign up for the Yahoo! group if you haven't already, the link is in my signature.

Whatever happens, remember that air squats are better than NO squats...

Garrett,

Thanks for the reply. I will look into the Yahoo! group.

I am interested to hear what you have to say medically.

Thanks again

Great! Good to see that others are getting into CF. I've gotten a couple other guys on the program as well. Say hello to the other guys out there.
