I ain't no spring chicken and it's only getting worse. For the past year now my left knee in particular (although the right feels not far behind) has been giving me issues. I started running a lot last year, or a lot more than usual and I think that might have been the culprit, besides obvious wear and tear. Being a stubborn old mule I want to try and work around this issue as opposed to give in and go get some kind of surgery which you know will be the first f'ing thing they recommend and then you're rarely ever the same again.
No longer looking to be massive so I just want my legs to somewhat keep up with the rest of my body so that I don't look like the guy that skips legs every week and is is gonna snap an ankle if I step the wrong way. lol
What workouts would you guys recommend to help maintain while taking it as easy on the knee joint as possible. Keep in mind that my real goal is to strengthen around my knee as much as possible without putting too much further strain on the ligaments and tendons and to keep my ass away from surgery before I'm on wrong side of 50.
Can't wait to hear some advice.
