Added a 25lb weight to my tricep dips (like the pic below). While I've felt like a true gym rat for some time, today is the day I felt like I finally made it.

Simulating what it's like having a 25lb ballsack.

Bike rides are one of the best safe exercises to strengethen the muscles around the knee. Since you keep mentioning behind the knee if there is still swelling there look up bakers cysts, i developed one of those when i tore my acl they are super annoying. Besides that go see a physio and try to get an Mri, maybe you tore your mensicus or any other small tears could cause the effect and there are specific exercises to rehab each injury properly.

Ok will do. On biking is a gym bike better or worst then an outdoor one?

1. Go to a doctor. Don't get medical advice on the internet.

 

It could be anything. If you have swelling in the knee, this could result in misalignment of any number of components in the knee, including the knee cap. It could also be something far more significant like a tear. 

I got an appointment later this week but thought I would ask you guys and see if you anyone got a similar injury.  

 

This knee injury is probably the worst injury I have had. I can only imagine a concussion being more inconvenient then a knee injury.

Stationary bike is for sure safer as it is a controlled environment.  I much prefer outdoor biking though and wanted to get out there asap as it is much more interesting/motivating as long as you play it safe in areas you're familiar with it seems fine (no trails/jumps etc)

Thinking about working out for my second time today. Just do a 30 minute run. Not sure if that’s good or not.

Last night I was awarded my first belt stripe in BJJ.  It is an honour for me coming from such a passionate and dedicated martial artist/instructor who has 40 years experience.

 

goes without saying I owe a lot to his great teaching and to all my sparring partners.

 

personally, I’m thrilled that I’ve been able to physically achieve this but more importantly that my brain is still capable of learning.  To be honest the mental challenge was my greatest motivator in starting martial arts.

 

With life’s routines, work, etc I find that I have to seek challenges more often especially on the mental side.  Imo this is one of the keys to actually “living”.

Does anyone here do that AIP diet?

Despite all of my clean and healthy eating over the past couple years (these couple years in particular, I've been eating very clean for about a decade now), I developed some auto-immune response which has progressively gotten worse. Doctor said to cut of a handful of these things including eggs, egg whites, tomatoes, hemp and chia seeds, flax oil, almond milk, and a handful of other things. Which is mind blowing because I didn't think 'healthy foods' were inflammatory. And also frustrating because you do all the right things and end up damaging yourself.

Can't have coffee either apparently. Decaff or not. I think I'd rather slip onto a rusty blade at this point. Everyone loves coffee..

Never heard of it. I just eat what I feel like, within reason. As long as I’m having roughly 2100 calories a day, I’m not all too concerned with how I’m getting it. I know I should, to a degree, but I’m also fully aware that I’m not:

 

1. A professional athlete

2. An actor

3. A model

 

So, I really don’t think about it. I like eggs, so I eat them (with yoke). Burgers? Whenever I feel like making them. Pasta? Yup (although, I sometimes try to eat it before intense cardio). I do also try and get my expected protein a day for my weight range, same with my carbs. 
 

But again, I don’t really cut things out. Just eat what my body tells me to eat. Not going to cut out things I like.

Not the first time I have heard of people having inflammation to foods like those.  That sucks, eggs are my favorite food, I would die if I had to give them up.  Can't say I have had any problems personally luckily.

I can't; she's the 'specialist'

Fair enough.  Very surprised.  I suppose these things change all the time.  Opinions everywhere.  This will be quite a challenge and I can definitely understand your frustrations.  Who knows next year you may hear the opposite.

 

for example, Steve Maxwell who basically started kettle bells now denounces them to some degree.
