After reading the symtoms I think I may have this also. I find I can bike quite a bit but not run at all and sometimes just walking can cause the pain. I had to mess around with my seat height alot to get around this. this may be all in my head but who knows.
When biking focus on the angles of your knees if you can try to put them mechanically proper. Not sure if that makes sense.
I tend to agree with what someone said about 3 times to run. Personally I find it far to high impact to be usefull there is many other less impacting cardio activities you can do other than running. I have always been a huge fan of biking or even punching a bag for some time.
Well I really have to get back to cardio. I can tell my BP is up. My knee does feel a lot better. Not any pain anymore. The thing is now when I go down stairs I can hear a rattle in the phucked up knee everytime I bend it!...I don't know about this. It may be from the NHA stack, as I am taking 2 Rebound Reloaded and 1 RXT per day. Also Retain, today I ran out of retain but have some Retain 2.0 on order which should be here sometime next week. I hope this sound is because of low estrogen or cortisol.....
Any comments on the crunching sound in my knee?
Could be from the RR, try decreasing the dosage to 1cap for a couple of days and see if it stops.

Yeah thats what I thought but its only my bad knee. Its not really a cracking sound. Its a crunching sound, like bone to bone or somthing and happens when I bend my knee. I doesn't hurt it just feels weird. I was going do the stairs the past few days and you know how most stairs creek when you go down them?. Well I was trying to figure out whether it was mostly the stairs or my knee!. I sat down and moved my knee, and yep its mostly my knee!. What the hell?.
I remember when I ran the original XT my left shoulder would always hurt but my right was just fine. It's weird I know but that's how these prods work sometimes.

Well yesterday I finally tried running again. Within about 30 seconds my knee was in pain, I didn't even really fun flat out I started to jog at a good pace. Might as well take me in the backyard a shoot me like a lame horse!...Nope I think I will just do long walks for my cardio. I don't see whats wrong with it. A lot of people have lost a lot fat with fitness walking. In fact most of the time when I hear about people losing a lot of fat, they started walking. Its not that I don't like runing, my knee doesn't!. I've got a pedometer and I am gonna do at least 20,000 steps per walk(5 miles). At least 5 times a week, maybe more. Also if you read my other thread about IBS, I am gonna stop carbing up for at least a month.
By the way my knee is still making that crunching noise.
I made a mistake in my previous post about the number of steps in 5 miles. Today was my first day and I did 14, 719 steps in my walk. This was 6.453 miles. Good walk except for the crazy ass golden retriver who sounded like he wanted to kill me for walking past him!.
I don’t quite understand this problem. I only know swimming is a good solution.
Do you think yoga would help you? Because it can improve your flexibility and burning fat.at the same time. I understand yoga isn’t really a cardio but if fat burning is the purpose you do cardio, may be yoga is another solution.
Anyway, good luck.
Get a cardio DVD and so it on a carpet in your socks?
You bumped a 4 year old thread LOL, no biggie though, it shows you're using the search feature and that's a good thing.
Inclined walking has been the best solution for me. Swimming is pretty good too. Stationary bike isn't crazy on the knees either.
