    what is your "go to" workout?

    If i need to get some cardio in because I going out to dinner I'd go for a bike ride. If im on holiday at an hotel gym id just try to get as close to the big 4 lifts as I can with the equipment available.

    Hey there people how's it going?

    Good morning!! Feeling ok but tired. I hate co workers who don't show up for shifts on time. Oh well... long day ahead of me. Lol

    Go-to workout was the elliptical, but to much of my disbelief, I am falling in love with the treadmill.

    Funny how that happens.

    Any suggestions for aching knees?
    -had surgery in May
    -have arthritis (ack that sounds old)
    -use knee sleeve/supports daily at Crossfit
    -use Salanpos (I smell like a locker room)
    -don't squat below 90 any longer...yet ;)
    -take glucosamine RSP supplement
    -wear awesome running shoes
    Anything I'm missing here that could help with knee pain???

    Are you using flat shoes (e.g.: squat shoes) for your squats and other weight lifting? Running shoes (unless zero-drop) will change your geometry a little putting some extra force forward, which may be felt in your knee, and the extra cushioning from a running shoe can provide some odd foot rolling which may also load the knees with some odd dynamics. Just a thought...

    All great advice and I would include adequate recovery time between heavy loads. I need more time for healing especially if going 70% or above of my 1RM.
