    In my experience with 2 meniscus situations. if I run up a hill I can run as fast as I can but when I do Hill sprints on a treadmill I only go about 75% Max. It is a bit different on the treadmill so I would just be careful

    @dmatuse How about incline walking?

    All is wrong. You have no idea how bad is the incline geometry for your knees !!! I had a torn meniscus removed (part of it) and when I started using incline treadmill, I noticed that my knee alignment was off. The pain developed slowly.
    The point is that your healthy knees are at much more stress and danger to be damaged one day, so I hope you will not end up doing knee surgery.
    There is no desire to scare you – just a fact…
    After 35-40 you should be careful…
