Editors Note: If You or a Training Partner Are Suffering From Any Kind of Knee Discomfort…This Will Be The Most Important Article You’ll Ever Read…

and former sufferer of knee pain
It’s true, close to 36% of all exercise related injuries affect the knee joint, making it close to the number one cause of pain suffered by those who love working out.
Doesn’t that make you wonder how some people are able to train with 100% effort month after month, without ever having to slow down due to a nagging injury caused by knee pain or soreness? They don’t have to take time off, or carefully select what exercises they can and can’t do.
If so, I’ll tell you how they do it.
But first I’d like to share with you 4 Tactics to Eliminate Knee Soreness that were taught to me by injury specialist and exercise physiologist Rick Kaselj, MS. I’ve spent a lot of time and money consulting with Rick, so be sure to pay close attention and take notes. These 4 strategies could be the difference between a nasty re-occurring knee blowout versus taking the fast track to the pain free “limitless” workouts you crave and deserve.
What you are doing out of the gym could be irritating your knee and leading to knee pain.
Look at what you are doing right now when it comes to your knee. Are you sitting down with your knees bent? Are your feet crossed? Are your feet behind you and under your chair?
All of these positions put greater stress on the knee, leading to irritation of the knee, which leads to knee pain.
The happiest position for your knee is when it is straight. As the knee joint bends, greater stress is put on the joints and ligaments. Basically as you bend your knee, your kneecap presses against your knee, leading to anterior knee pain. If your knee is bent, you increase the tension in the ligaments in the knee, such as the ACL, which can lead to ligamentous knee pain. Lastly if you have internal knee pain, the greater the knee is bent, the more it puts unnecessary stress inside the knee joint.
If you sit in this bent knee positing for hours, it will progressively make your knee pain worse.
Quick Fix: While you are sitting at your desk, on the couch, in a meeting, or watching a movie, remember to keep your knees straight when you can to decrease stress on the knee.
Years ago, before meeting exercise physiologist Rick Kaselj, MS I found myself caught in this vicious cycle prior to and after having a football related ACL surgery.
As Rick later explained to me this cycle is very common and has happened to most of his clients in the past. It goes a little something like this…
Seriously? If your insurance isn’t that great you’ll probably have to go back to your primary care doctor to get a referral to see a specialist. They’ll have you do an MRI which is super expensive. You’ll have to schedule another appointment for that though.
Hopefully you’re asking yourself…Mike, how do I make sure I don’t get caught in this crooked knee pain model? I’m glad you asked and my reply is outlined in tactic #3 below.
Before and after my ACL surgery in 2001 I researched a lot of alternative knee rehab solutions.
With these traditional knee pain protocols, they focus on purely stretching and strengthening. This alone does not work or at best provides temporary knee pain relief. The reality is that stretching focuses on symptoms, not necessarily the problem.
“Neither Strengthening nor Stretching Will Help You Until The Knee Joint
Has Been Reshaped Into a Pain Free Joint.”
While strengthening is important, it needs to be done when the knee joint has been reshaped into a pain-free knee joint. If you have not reshaped the knee joint into a pain-free joint, you are just adding more strength to a painful joint and making the problem worse. In time this stress leads to repetitive knee injuries, increased knee joint damage and overall knee pain.
In the next strategy I’ll share with you how to re-shape your knees so that when you strengthen them you will NOT be causing more damage.
The KR3-Method is short for “Knee Reshaping 3-Part Method”. It was invented by Injury Specialist and Kinesiologist Rick Kaselj, MS who has over 16-years of hands on experience, and a masters degree in exercise science.
In the vicious knee pain cycle above I mentioned how the doctor simply told me to not do what hurts? The entire reason I came in for the visit was to get back to what I love doing, not to stop doing what I love.
Battling knee pain has been over a decade long debacle for me. Let me give you some quick background information.
Having played outside linebacker in college many moons ago I used to have running backs and full backs diving at my knees to cut block me every time I rushed the passer. After the games my knees would swell up and it would take a few days of icing before I was back to 100%. Practicing, playing games and strength training took its toll on my body.
I learned this the hard way in 2001. After college I went to Sweden to play football and tore my Anterior Crucial Ligament (ACL). Throughout the season I kept trying to rehab and keep playing but obviously this wasn’t possible.
Once I returned to the states it was time for surgery. To be perfectly blunt with you the rehab process was very painful and I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. In fact, I remember bribing my physical therapist at the time by bringing him free Critical Bench tshirts and supplements hoping he would take it easy on me.
Crutching around in the snow during that time of my life was not one of my high points.
Years later after trial and error getting sucked into the vicious pain cycle and being told by doctors not to participate in activities that put stress on the knee; I defied all odds and decided to start competing in powerlifting. From time to time my knee would feel strange and would definitely be extra sore on the weekends. I’d always grab the aisle seat at the movies and on airplanes so that I could straighten my leg if it started aching.
What can I say? I had what we call “the bug” and loved competing no matter what the cost.
Eventually a shoulder injury did cause me to step away (for now). This shoulder injury is what initially led me to seek out the gifted hands of Injury Specialist Rick Kaselj, MS. Long story short, he helped me fix my shoulder pain in a matter of weeks and the next trouble spot on the list was my lingering knee pain.
Working in the fitness industry myself I knew I had to go to the source of the knowledge and cut out the middle man. You see Rick is more than just a specialist. He’s the guy who teaches the other fitness professionals the newest techniques to help their own clients. He has given over 315 live presentations to over 6065 health and fitness professionals across Canada and the USA.
Sure his credentials, degrees and real-world experiences are fine and dandy, but what ultimately sold me on him is the fact that he works with athletes and people that are serious about getting back to their workouts, not avoiding them.
Within minutes of trying a few techniques Rick recommended I started feeling better. Within a few weeks of following his protocol I felt like a new person. No more sleepless nights and half speed workouts. Nope….guess who’s back? Back again…bringing sexy back!
After improving the quality of life for myself and my family, I’m a “believer” in Rick and practically begged him to team up with Critical Bench and allow me the privilege of sharing his new Fix My Knee Pain System utilizing his trademarked KR3 Method.
The “Traditional Knee Pain Model” involves endless cycles of appointments, investigations, stretching and strengthening.
After having hundreds of Rick’s clients follow this model with minimal success, he needed to find a new model that breaks the traditional knee pain model and moves clients from painful kneesto pain-free knees.
This led to the creation of the KR3 Method which is based on one key concept: Reshaping your knee from a painful knee joint to a pain-free knee joint.
I know it sounds amazing but let me show you how you can do this for yourself and have your painful knee move into a pain free knee.
The first part of the KR3 method involves using internal reshaping. You take simple steps to create an environment in your knee so your knee can being to reshape from a painful joint into a pain free joint.
The second part of the KR3 method is reshaping the knee from the outside. Now we are doing things that will continue the reshaping of the knee, with a focus on what we can do to reshape it from the outside from a painful joint to a pain free joint.
Now we have started the reshaping of the knee from the inside and outside, the next step is to focus on injury specific exercises. Most therapists do all the same exercises no mater what the knee injury is but this is not right. About 60% of the exercises are the same for all knee injuries but the last 40% is injury specific.
Rick will show you everything you need to do in the Fix My Knee Pain system. He will go through the 3-part program in detail using easy to follow videos and instructional guides so you can reshape your knee from a painful joint to a pain free joint.

Q: Do I have to stop working out while I do the Fix My Knee Pain Program?

Q: Do I need any special equipment or gym membership to follow this?
A: No, many of the pieces of equipment suggested are commonly found around the house or can be found at a department store for a few dollars. You don’t need a gym membership to do the program but it you do have a gym membership you can do the program at the gym.
Q: Doe the system work best for people of a certain age?
A: This will work for people any age from teenagers to the golden years. In fact the older you are the better it will work. Years of gravity work on our knees often times leads to the knees reshaping into painful knees.
