1/22/2015 1:06:11 PM - Jordan
I am 28 and train 4 days a week with a body part split hitting each body part once a week. I also play basketball 2-3 times per work. The last few weeks I have experienced minor symptoms of patellar tendonitis. I had patellar tendonitis while playing college basketball but it went away after my career ended. I donít want to have the issue flair up enough to affect my lower body work. I want to do what I can to prevent it from getting worse and hopefully solve whatever is causing the issue in the first place. Any help would be appreciated.

Jordan,

Stop playing basketball like you did when you were in college.

NOTE!!!

I didn't say Stop Playing Basketball, just stop the WAY you were playing it.

Logic tells me you had tendonitis in college while you played hoops, and now that you are 28 you're experiencing the symptoms again. Since 2+2 doesn't equal "potato", I can only visualize that you are playing at an intensity that equals the efforts that you had done seeking an NCAA title.

Stop dunking and start dishing.




That way you'll be able to play well into the old age of 40,
Harry Selkow
