    Yesterday I took an active rest day. Today is a rough day mentally and I don't really have the headspace, but I've been doing push-ups to keep me on my toes.
    So, 60 knee pushups and still counting! And I even did 3 proper push-ups in a row!

    Today: Pistol Squat Workout, Tendons & Core Workout, 1min plank challenge 12

    Thank you GentleOx It actually does! I went to Ultimate practice and my knees already were much much stronger and I barely had to hold myself back.
    Yeah, I think Ultimate for me is the one constant of sport I have in my life, even though I've had several like 1-year-long pauses. I feel very much at home in that sport And yes, it is hell of an exercise
    Have a good one, everyone!

    I hope your knee pain lessens over time.

    I remember playing Ultimate. I sucked, but it's a hell of a way to exercise!

    Yes, I also suspected that I was straining my knees from wrong roundhouses. I will refrain on training them until my knees are better, and maybe when I pick up Fighter's Codex again I just do them slow and only half of them to work on form and movement first. But the suggestions you've made sound like something that I did wrong there. Thank you for your input TheGrayLynx !!!

    Today: 30 Days of HIIT Day 3, 1min plank challenge 11 aaand 2h of Ultimate practice this evening

    Ah knee problems suck :/ hope you get them better soon! As for the roundhouses i would suggest checking if you: dont turn your hips and accidentally do the "soccer kick". This is one of the common mistakes when doing roundhouse, you actually stress the knee even more. Another common problem is you dont "step" with the supporting foot- means you try to turn into the kick with flat feet. This also hurts the knee since your foot twists when you turn to the kick. I dont know if any of this helps, but i hope you get your knee better! Have a fine day!

    Hellooo long time no write!
    Since the last time I did:

    HIIT Program Day 1 and 2
    2x 3 sets of push ups
    3 sets of negative pull-ups
    1min plank challenge 9 & 10
    and I went shopping for clothes which is basically cardio

    I'm shelving Fighter's Codex for now because I currently have knee problems and I feel like the turning kicks are not good for that, especially since I don't execute them 100% correct. I also reduce my Ultimate Training from 2/week to only 1/week until my knees are healthy again. Also I promised some people that I get them checked
