made a really dumb mistake, have been training more agressively, and decided
to add a little free weight to the mix...
No Problems till I hit the Squat Sled and thought I am stronger than I was 2 years
ago when I did mostly free weight and jogging
Yes the legs are powerful from cycling but the tendons are now more addept
at cycling and not holding up 400 pounds of free weight, did 20 easy dips and moved on.to quaDS AND CURLES..
the next morning my knee was sore, I must have strained or mildly sprained the meidialtendon of my R leg.CRAAAAAAA____!mY LEG feels like my shoulder after tossing a baseball from the outfield!!!
My guess is the Fibers of the tendon may have been streched too the tearing point..
DUMB DUmb DUMB. Now I limp a little and will have to gently re-hab that tendon, to much actiion could cause more damage, it should heal nicely in a few weeks God willing
The Achmee knee brace in my closet all covered in dust fixed the pain when walking. not sure about cyclmg may just spin for a while/// dumb dumb.....
Never will I do heavy lifting with my legs they are to strong for the supoortive structures of the laterial and medial tendons, not to mention the risk of cartlidge
damage from grinding the patellia into the heads of bones... DUMB DUMB,, I know better but the weights felt great at the time...
So trust me on this Cyclist may not realize how powerfull their legs are till they sprain a
tendon that provides colateral support to the knee a very delicate structure,
not to mention I overlooked the age thing at 61 going on 62...The Medial Coalteral tendon R Leg Interiror notice how delicate the tendons look this type of strain or sprain in football or soccer not free weight.... be warned,,,,,
