Beating Patellar Tendonitis

It’s difficult to remember exercises solely by their name. Download the following PDF files to make your life easier when performing the knee health training program. I have kept these documents short, so that you can save paper when printing. Please consult the book for detailed explanations of the respective exercises and their progressions/regressions.
Required Tools & Equipment
To complete the patellar tendonitis program you need certain tools. Among them are a foam roller, a slanted board, a rubber band, and a training journal. For foam rolling, I personally prefer the Rumble Roller (picture and link below), but you can also use a different model. Some gyms provide foam rollers for their clients, so maybe you don’t need to buy one altogether.
The Slanted Board
If you’re handy with tools, you can build the slanted board yourself. Here are three different building plans for it: building plan 1, building plan 2, and building plan 3. You can make it using some scraps of wood and a bit of sandpaper.
Don’t want to build it yourself? Not a problem. A company that makes excellent slanted boards is Flex-n-go.com.
If you’re in the UK or in Europe, you can get this slanted board.
Remember that you need this board to beat your patellar tendonitis. There are many options to get one, just make sure you do.
The Training Journal
For your training journal, you can go with an expensive version, or you buy something cheap. I can see the advantage of using something high quality, as it’ll stand the test of time. On the other hand, I’ve been using a very cheap journal for the past 3 years and it’s still in good condition.
If you’re extremely serious about training I’d recommend you go with the expensive journal. If you’re only going to use it for the rehab, go with the cheap journal.
(Please note: You may find better deals by shopping around locally.)
Below are a number of liquid fish oil and vitamin c supplements from which you can choose. I’ve used Pure Encapsulations and Nordic Naturals in the past. In terms of taste, I prefer Pure Encapsulations, but since your palate is different, you might want to try all of them at some point to see which one you like best.
Some fish oil supplements contain vitamin D. This is beneficial in the wintertime or if you live in an area without much sunshine. If you get enough sun, you should be careful about supplementing with Vitamin D without prior blood testing.
Fish Oil Supplements
Make sure you select a fast shipping option if you order this during warm periods. Your best choice is to order it through a local pharmacy to make sure the fish oil isn’t exposed to excessive heat during shipping.
Vitamin C Supplements
You can buy the vitamin c supplement locally or you can shop for it on Amazon. I don’t have specific product recommendations for it.
