Those are the absolute worst! Like a lunge and then you jump and land in a lunge with the different leg, right? They still kill my legs and butt after like 20 seconds already :lol:

Those are the ones! They make us do sets of 20 in MMA warm up sometimes = hell.

Single leg squats are even worse.  :sick:

 

Had a good leg day today. Squatted for the first time in almost a month. Form was a little out - possibly fatigue, but it'll be good to work towards getting it bang on again. My knee seems to be behaving (still going to go to the doctor about it) for the weights stuff, still squiffy for running. 

 

I've been chatting to one of the PTs at my gym who's a friend. Considering taking up sparring once a week for my cardio. I need something that'll keep my engaged. Circuits will bore me before too long.

I can't do them. I managed about 30cm in Judo last night before I fell over. And if I do managed to get down I can't get back up again! :P

 

Also Sparring? DO IT, DO IT, DO IT... what sort? Just boxing?

Single leg squats are tough too, but the explosive nature of jumping lunges (that largely are also single leg focussed) makes them that much harder imo!

rest your 'off' leg on a bench behind you. Add a bar on your shoulders if you're feeling ambitious. Best way of doing them. Helps you maintain balance but takes none of the onus off your weight-bearing leg. 

 

Yeah just boxing most likely. I'm not open to kick boxing with my knee as it is. maybe once I've had something actually done to it other than just strapping it up.

Boxing's great though, as long as you learn something outside of the rigid; 1, 2, 1, 2, 3 etc. Although having said that my left hook is a beast. What's up with your knee?

It's been dodgy for years. Rugby accident I think, or a bad fall on it in icy weather springs to mind. Either way, it's been grinding like a cog since about 15. Flares up in agony when the weather turns colder, sometimes to the point where I can't have my leg straight. I have to lay with it bent or I'll be moaning in agony. I walk with a limp most days the temperature is under 8 degrees. It's fine with load bearing - since I've started training legs over the last two years it has become much better in general because here is more muscular support, but the joint itself needs looking at. It's something I never got round do, but I will when I get time off during half term.

Ouch! Sounds pretty sucky :/. I have cartilage problems with my right knee that gets worse when it's damp, but nothing like that! Hope they can fix when you go get it checked. :)
