This life of mine and knee issues! My left knee yesterday was hurting all day. Everytime I walked to or walked up steps. Today, I don’t feel anything. My right knee hurts a bit even though I got a steroid injection a few weeks ago. Lordie! My left knee is bone on bone. My right knee has arthritis and a meniscus tear. What next? #knees#arthritis#joemendez this aging thing!!!!
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT by @coachstrumos
Squats don't hurt your knees! Improper form, control and lack of load management do.
Deadlifts don't hurt your back! Sitting all day does.
Bench presses don't hurt your shoulder! Working only on pressing exercises does.
I hate hearing that universally an exercise is bad for you because of x reason. Thinking of things as black and white may be simple, but it leaves out the nuance necessary to think for yourself. *
Whether something is contraindicative for you depends on you, simple as that. Barbell squats are not for everyone, but saying that they're bad because they will always hurt your knees is ignorant. *
My point is to think for yourself, don't follow what the crowd is saying when there's nothing to back it up. I had a guy come up behind me after a front squat set and warn me that because I was locking out my knees at the top I was damaging them and because I wasn't wearing a belt I was at risk for hurting my back. *
Both of these claims are widely untrue but still way too common. The guy looked like he worked out, but that doesn't give him credibility. So protect yourself from misinformation and think critically about what apparently "experienced" people are telling you.
"We've got to get on the side of nature," the governor said. "We can't just fight it." The One and Only Jesus is who we need to call on to get on the side of nature, in Cali, Chi Town, or The Twin Cities or any place of crisis and comfort. We need to call on Jesus in the mist of the midnight hour, we need to call on Jesus! We need to call on Jesus in the middle of any day. We need to call on Jesus when everything looks good. We need to call on the one who walks through closed doors, walks on water, turns water into wine, and washes feet. We need to call on HIM like we buy gifts to celebrate HIS birthday and call it Christmas. There ain't but one way to get on the side of nature and that is through the one and only Jesus. But, we ain't got to be in Cali to pray for the reinforcement of the lamb that was slain. We ain't got to be in Cali to pray for The Almighty to remember, not as though He forgot but to pray with such persistence to let HIS heart know we know HIS promises and to let HIS heart know, not only do we know HIS promises but we know our place, our position in this fight is on our KNEES.

The cost of #happyknees , now before you keep reading this is not meant to be a post to complain. This is mere testimonial facts brought to you by someone who has tried many products working the in the architectural metal industry who has gone through 12-15 kneepads in 12 years and 6 different types of the kneepad pocketed pants/overalls. I have asked repeatedly to a couple companies about some tougher outer-shell profiles because when it comes down to it, it’s not just what the pad is comprised of, it’s also how the pad is protected for longevity. Know it may be anti-profitable to make something that lasts more than 6 months but just as we invest in tools that have great shelf-life why wouldn’t we do the same with the products that give us a longer shelf-life. I’ll do some tags at the bottom but in no way is this a hit against any of these outfits. Just a #foodforthoughtfriday
Back to the pic posted, this is what the knees on a pair of @duradrivesystems overalls look like after a month of usage, a pair or @blakladerna pants lasted me 6 months, several other off branded pants lasted me about 4-6 months as well. Many had the unfortunate premature end of the crotch ripping just from typical workload and less than favourable flexibility. A pair of @redbacks_cushioning @stlflx velco strap knee pads have maybe lasted me a year. I tore through the fabric of the outer material about 2 months ago. If any of you guys know a product not frequently brought up feel free to share it with me. Give me your feedback on what works for you. My continuous issue is getting jagged stones poking through the webbing of my redbacks, now while we could speculate on a tougher pad that will not slow down the outer material from wearing away presenting the same issue stated above. Feel free to reach out with any questions or advice and other products.
Are you weak in the #knees ? Bowenwork helps by correcting postural imbalances that cause undue stress on joints, which can limit further damage. Bowenwork also helps reduce inflammation in the joints, which promotes creation of new, healthy cartilage.
