    Default An Overworked Knee

    Hey guys,

    I just got back from a visit with the doctor concerning my knee. It turns out the strange feeling was inflammation/fluid in the knee. I haven't done any damage to it, but she recommends just not doing anything for a month and only doing dumbbell step-ups the second month. She also told me I couldn't run during my warm-ups, but luckily the elliptical feels fine. After these two months I return to, "see where I'm at".

    Two months seems like a long time considering the nature of the problem. However, I'm fully aware that coming back early is not even close to worth risking long term injury.

    What would your routine look like if it didn't involve legs? Would there be any sort of leg exercise that doesn't involve the knees? Is there anything else I should know?

    Thanks in advance

    curious if she drained the knee?
    Did she have an idae that caused it?

    No, she didn't drain it.

    She believed that my steady increase in both volume and weight, coupled with the sports I've been playing my whole life, was just too much since my knee wasn't used to it. I myself had also determined that I had been keeping my knees inward during the leg press until I noticed and quickly corrected it a few weeks later. That definitely doesn't help haha.
