Do you know if it's just movement in general that bothers your knees or the impacting? Using the C2 rower is a great cardio machine and has no pounding on the knees.ADVANCED MUSCLE SCIENCE

Well I think it was originally lots of squatting and leg presses that made it start hurting and I Just never took a long period of time to let it heal up so now I'm not sure, but its agitated after lifting or cardio now.

I personally, like cardio on elliptical my knees had some trouble a few years ago or so mostly from basketball and football. And i found using the elliptical and performing things such as HIIT or even steady state cardio, there is virtually no stress on my knew joints. But as mentioned really anything where you dont have to step constantly like running.

try heating up your legs before cardio like in a sauna. Also work on strengthening your quads and stretching them out a couple times a day

I prefer biking if my knees or ankles hurt at all. Swimming is good to but I just cant get the same workout from swimming that I can from using the bike.

Ouch if your kness hurt after using a stationary bike then you def have something going on. Are you taking any AIs right now like Hyperdrol or Novedex XT or something? Or maybe an anti-cortisol like Lean FX? You may want to take some days off from cardio for your joints to heal up. If you have one of those arm bike machines try that for cardio.

re cycling, if you are using too high a gear (i.e. too much resistance) then you could possibly have some knee issues, especially if you are not strong enough to be using that gear. Otherwise, if you're HEARING something, then you should probably get your knee checked out by a physiotherapist. If it is a grinding, then that never goes away, and all you can do is try NOT to aggravate it. if it is a clicking or popping, then you definitely need to do something about it as soon as possible (these can be dealt with).

its grinding from the almost fully straight(170 degrees about) to when I move it to fully straight(180 degrees).

I don't play any other sports. I haven't considered a knee brace, I thought those were only useful in sports like basketball soccer. Other than lifting, the only use my knee gets is walking, moderate cardio on the machines listed above, and squatting/leg presses.
