    I know what you mean about creaky knees. I've been working out for a long time and do work out my legs but not on a consistent basis. After doing a 90 day fitness rotation that included weights and cardio, I decided to start lifting heavier weights. My arms and back were okay with that decision but when I started to up my weights with my legs, I really felt it on my knees. I was only doing lunges and squats and didn't start off too too heay (maybe 15-20 lb dumbbells and maybe 35-40 barbell) but I had to stop. I am now training my legs with PiYo (mat work and body strength exercises) and the occasional barre and lighter dumbbell work. I've seen a difference in my leg strength and definition with the PiYo. Hopefully, my knees will hold out! Thanks for this blog post!
