    Hi Rip; First of all thanks for all you do and teach ...No one like you out there helping us out. For us 50 and up lifters you are the only voice of reason! Thanks.

    Just wondering if I should start lifting sooner than later. Jacked my right knee about three and a half weeks ago trying to do something stupid. Yeah I thought I would do a snatch lift without proper technique while hanging with some crossfit youngsters in my buddies garage gym. Felt a slight strain in the knee...but no pop or snap...nothing torn off I am told.
    Physio guy said I have a slight tear in the meniscus and LCl. He said not even a level 1 tear. he said keep doing some physio excercise stuff and stretch and wait 6 weeks. It was super tight initially and getting better it seems.
    Love to walk , however I get some pain in knee when I walk too far. Just have been doing box squats with body weight...pretty good. Biking feels good too. Wondering if I should add bar yet ?
    Wondering if you have ever trained folks with this type of injury. Should I just wait a couple more weeks when I can walk at least a mile pain free? Coming up on week 4 .
    Add the bar? Wait until completely healed up?
    Ps I tried to tell physio guy about SS...blank look back at me.

    Thank you

    This has been dealt with so many times over the years that you're just going to have to look it up.
