Ya, I was 80% 'he's being sarcastic' and 20% 'uhhh...maybe not'

Anyhow outside vs inside gym - no argument there. I'm not blaming the gym for my knees at all.

As a kid, I used to play a real lot of indoor cricket...the best analogy I can give for non-Australians as to what that put my knees through is to think of a catcher in his crouch, and bouncing up for the throw to second base about 120 times in about 45 minutes, about 4 times a week. It messes with their knees over their careers, and it basically screwed mine for life in my formative years.

That said, the knees are generally OK day to day, get a bit sore when I run 10 miles or more, although in the warm climate I live in, don't cause me too much grief. Still, I do my best to not provoke them, and that's why I've steered clear of deadlifting for so long....still, I'm thinking the benefits may outweigh the risks and gonna give them a shot.

Choosing not to deadlift is probably more detrimental to your knees than deadlifting would be.

FWIW the only time i seriously popped my knees was when i was deadlifting so be wary of the people who have zero experience working around knee injuries. i wouldn't say i had bad knees beforehand, but as a goalie in hockey i certainly wasn't kind to them.

still, give deadlifts a spin - experiment with different stances and for god's sake make sure your knees track out of your toes. don't torque your knees.

I wider rubber band must be more comfortable for mobility work when wrapping it tight around body parts, right? Thinking about the 44 or 64 mm width.

This, after you take your time making sure you're setting up correctly.

A proper/improper setup will make or break, near maximal/fatigued pulls.

Pull it up just as fast as you would for a warmup. People tend to slow down on heavier weight and end up losing a lot of power that way.
