Becoming Ronin Podcast – #16 – Fix Your Knees (Immediately), Newlywed Game

BECOMING RONIN GIVEAWAY – To enter, share this episode on social media and tag @oberther, @smittydiesel, and @becomingronin to be entered to win one of many Becoming Ronin Swag Boxes. Today’s episode is split into two parts. Part 1 is all about knee pain. OB covers his approach with a client who presents with Patella Femoral Syndrome and some very simple at home correctives to fix it. Smitty and OB then discuss training considerations that may help you bulletproof your knees. In Part 2, Smitty and OB put a spin on a Q&A by answering them Newlywed style (answering each question for the other person) and hilarity ensues.
