cartilage degeneration and jumping ability

To Charlie (or anyone)

I read that Ben did not do a lot of jumping exercises due to degeneration issues in the knee joints. I seem to have a bit of wear and tears in my cartilages although they dont hurt (just some noise in the knee joints) and i’m just wondering how this will effect my training and jumping ability? I am currently training to improve my vertical leap to enhance my starts.


Noise may not be degen.
It may be - but its not the only sign.

Of course pain generally is a telltale sign - but also is not necessary due to lack of nerve endings.

Bets approach is sound nutrition and proper landing mechanics


anyone else with similar noise in their knees or any inputs to this?
