    Just got back from the gym. First time I've worked out in 9 months. Man it feels good to be back! For those of you who consistently go to a gym, what is your typical workout routine? I've mainly been doing weights, but that's because there isn't much cardio I can do due to my knees. Just looking for some ideas. Did 60 minutes of weights today working various muscle areas.

    i usually do back and biceps one day, skip two days, and then chest and triceps. i start with stretching and abs, and finish with lunges or other leg stuff. i do 20 reps of everything, at a weight where i can keep my form and don't risk injuring myself, or looking like a complete douche haha. sometimes i'll do a full body workout but only if i'm planning on not being able to work out again that week

    I typically only work out one body part a day. Usually goes like this:

    M - Chest
    T - Back
    W - Legs
    T - Arms
    F - Shoulders

    This allows you to isolate the workload on one body part, working it (nearly) to failure. The days are also laid out in which the previous day's body part is not directly involved with the current day's lift, giving it some rest.

    I don't do any cardio, really, and I work out for strength and mass, so I do 5-6 reps max with 4 heavy weight sets, 4-5 exercises per day. It usually goes with the exercise with most stabalizer muscles involved first, and progressively more isolated as the workout continues. (e.g. Dumbell press, bench press, cable fly, smith press). Reason for this is because earlier in the day, while you are fresh, you can push your stabilizer muscles more. As you tire, you can give your weaker stabilizers a break with an isolation excercise.

    But, as with all workout advice, take it with a grain of salt...as what works for me may not work for you :thumbsup:

    I used to do something similar back in my hockey days. Only I'd rotate it out between strictly cardio and strictly weights. I liked doing it this way, but can't anymore. I'll be looking to try out your method for sure! Thanks for the replies guys!

    ...I can vouch for crossfit as well. I've been working out with the regiment above for years, and I thought I was pretty fit...took up crossfit at the same time I started jiu-jitsu, and wow, i felt out of shape. crossfit is a true total body workout.

    I used to do the elliptical. Then for whatever reason it started buggin my knees. I need only low impact stuff. Since I started working out again, the gym gave me a complimentary 50 minute session with a personal trainer. So hopefully I can get some tips and info from them as well to help find the right balance for me.

    :eek: I hope they're not telling you squats are bad! Whoever is the overall authority on sports (can't remember) actually said you can increase your knee flexibility as well as strength in the surrounding muscles. If you perform a squat the right way, you actually improve your knees to be able to handle loads again. Lots of people give up on squats "because they have bad knees." Well, they have bad knees due to poor form, squats are GOOD for you, when done correctly. It might be a good idea to do a 400m run warmup or a 500m row then stretch your legs/hips real well. Could be your IT Band pulling on your knee cap causing the discomfort. Happened to me, now I just stretch 10min after row or run and continue with a good warmup. Try to roll that bad boy too, it'll hurt quite a bit, just don't rely on foam rolling all the time.

    Also don't forget deadlifts. They actually used to be called healthlift surprisingly.

    In taekwondo 6 days a week for my workouts. Great balance of strength, flexibility, and conditioning. My knee will ache sometimes if I have improper form with all the twisting. The horse stance and back stance really strengthen my knees due to the strengthening of my quads and hamstrings. The stretching helps limber up my IT band which is most of my problem, pulling on the knee cap which has very little cartilage left after my surgery.

    I know that if you do the squat right, it'll strengthen the quads and help relieve the pain. I started doing them when I was playing hockey, but then for whatever reason I stopped due to other pains. It'd be a good idea to pick up on it though. My old coach was a personal trainer by living, so he did show me the proper technique for them. Here's a vid of my knees. Both of them are like that. You can see my big ass hockey legs :laugh:

    I just got home form a workout. Did 35mins of lifting and managed to do a 1.5 miles on the elliptical.
