Rediscovering My Knees

I'm 5 feet 11 inches tall and so and so pounds ( I say so and so because I refuse to weigh myself right now.)  When I gain weight my knees are first  to disappear. However, with workout, I can usually find them again in about three weeks, depending on how long it has been since last sighting.   Today I decided  to start that three week journey (at least I'm hoping it's three weeks.) Today’s Workout:

  • 30 minutes on Elliptical (Resistance between 7 - 10. Average pace about  6.5 miles per hour)
  • 10 minutes running/walking on Treadmill (Incline on 1. Average pace about 4 miles per hour.)
  • 3 sets of 10 leg extensions with 30/40 pounds.
  • 3 sets of 15 forward kicks
  • four 30 second  interval of squats and half squats without weights
  • 3 sets of 10 lunges with 20 pounds
  • 2 sets of 10 stepups

It all ends with about 10 minutes of stretching focused on areas that I worked the most. I hold each position for a count of about 10.

 

Knees, what I'm giving myself this Christmas. Thanks!
