Cracking But Painless Knees?

Among the many questions I'm often being asked by my clients is about cracking but painless knees. I believe you too may have experienced it. But the question is what's the problem? is it harmful if it's left untreated?

As a matter of fact, what's cracking but not causing pain is known as Crepitus. It's said to be air being trapped on the joints space due to cartilage wear. It does not only happens to the knee, it also happens to other joints of the body.

Treatment for it? Not that I am aware of any, but perhaps you might want to check with your family doctor to confirm about it.

Training At Home? But Without Equipment(s)? How!?

Well, this is the common question people would ask me when I tell them I do home based Personal Training. Most of the time I train my clients without any fancy looking machines that you see in most commercial fitness clubs. Some of my clients might have Cardio Machines, either Treadmills, Elliptical Trainers, Stationary Bikes or a Rowing Machine. Treadmill is the most common machine owned among my clients.

But even that, I don't train my clients using any of their available Cardio Machines - What's the point paying me to watch you running on your treadmill? I ask them to run when they are not training with me instead.

So how do I train my clients without any equipments? 

With the understanding of science of human motion, human movement, body structure and body functions, we can workout regardless where you are. The fancy looking machines at the gyms are made by mimicking human movement after all. I train of my clients with bodyweights and plyometrics conditioning instead - structuring and progressing them depending on their fitness level.

Does that mean I don't use any equipment(s) at all? 
Well, No. I do use some mobile equipments, depending on my client's fitness level. However, they are only used to add challenges to clients' routine when clients are starting to get too comfortable with their own bodyweight.
