Upstream/downstream – the knee itself is only one possibility of why you may have knee pain.  Likely it is a non-optimal position based problem either above or below the knee that is compromising the way it works and your feedback mechanism for that is: PAIN  Let’s try to get rid of some of that by feeding some slack to the system.

Warmup:
Today we are looking at downstream:
Begin with 200M easy jog, 25 jumping jacks, 20 pushups, 10 pullups, then:
Practice a handful of perfect squats, hold the bottom position, feel where you lose ankle range of motion and what it does to your position
4 minutes stretching each calf – 2 min straight leg, 2 min knee forward as in the video
After stretching the calves go back to the squat and hopefully all that stretching will be evident in a positional improvement!
 
Conditioning:
5 x 3 minute intervals – aim to get 1 min rest or more
– Accumulate 30 sec handstand (approximate)
– 100M shuttle run
– 10 burpees
 
Cool Down:
500M easy row
