    :devil:

    10 years of playing wil do that to you. Among other things...

    Hoping I can lose a bit of weight from this too since I've gained like 30lbs since I stopped playing 17 months ago. :(

    FOr bad knees u may be limited to swimming and cycling for cardio. If the issue is patellofemoral disease (ie kneecap arrthritis, chondromalacia, cartilage damage etc) seat adjustment for cycling is crucial and definitely avoid open-chain exercises such as leg extension machine. If squatting or lunges stay with light weight and only descend to 45 to 60 degrees instead of traditional 90degs. Also IT band does not attach to kneecap and stetching such as crossovers will usuaaly help.

    Cycling did cause me pain in the past, but it could very well have been seat adjustments. Lunges, I have found much pain with those. I'll try doing it at a 45-60 degree angle instead though and see how it goes.

    Oh and these are the knee braces I wear. I have one on each. They seem to have helped with support, in the past however many years. I wore them a the end of my hockey career while I played. It helped a lot.

    I like those stabilizing wraps. Start out cycling with really low resistance and if your tolerating work your way up slowly. Make sure seat is up or back far enough that when your feet are at the farthest point in the arc away from your body, your knees have just a slight amount of bend/flexion. around 10 degrees

    Get some vibram five fingers and ditch those fucking braces. Strengthen your shit back up to how it should be, like our ancestors. All that shit does is make you more susceptiblr to injury. Look uo the benefits of barefoot training. Details how the more expensive your shoes are, the more prone to injury you become

    Those McDavids just simply help stabilize the patella. Many people experience premature wear within the patellofemoral interval due to poor natural anatomic alignment and lateral riding patellae (ie kneecaps sit towards the outside aspect of the knee), or have had a patellar dislocation. This device simply allows u to apply a slight amount of counter-pressure to hopefully mildly improve the way the patella articulates within the trochlea (the groove on end of femur {thigh bone}).

    I just started going to the gym last week. I do 45 minutes of weights and then do 2 miles on the elliptical machine.
    I used to think the gym was a waste of time.
    I go 4 days a week on my lunch break (we have a gym at work) and I'm already seeing a difference. I do upper body 2 days and legs 2 days.
    I'm not out of shape but since I'm single it's time to get into better shape LOL

    Sorry, just assumed they're braces, yet in a way aren't they?

    The five fingers and barefoot training will work all your leg muscles and correct deficencies.
