My fiance and I want to start doing Crossfit as a way to work out together, but both of us have some injuries we need to work on first. I have a shoulder injury from a “botched” bench press 2 years back, which I am currently working using the circuits on the diesel crew website that frosty posted about. Today was my first day, but so far so good.
My fiance has a knee injury from running. She says that it only really hurts when shes either running or working out, and that all of the pain is just below the patella. If she stops working out or running for a few days, then the pain completely goes away. Are there any good knee strengthening/rehab exercise routines anyone knows of that she could try out? Also, at what point is it usually okay to start mixing in WODs (at buttercup level) when doing a rehab routine?
Any help/tips are greatly appreciated!
