Or, in layman's terms, sore knees.
I started doing Body Pump about six months ago. Since then the tops of my knee caps have been bothering me ever since whenever I squat down to pick something up off the floor or get something out of the bottom kitchen cabinet. They can also be sore when I'm standing up from a chair.
I finally saw the doctor earlier this week and after some twisting and turning she determined my knees are in good shape (no crunching or crackling) and that it's probably stress on the ligaments.
Since I am NOT going to stop Body Pump I used some of my Amazon gift card money to order a couple of knee braces.
Ah, the joys of sliding down the back side of 40!
One stumble does not a failure make.
Everything in moderation.
