My knees have been acting up this week and I think that it might be because of the shoes that I am using. I trained with Asics running shoes until now but I am not sure if running shoes are appropriate for high intensity bodyweight workouts. So I was in the city on Saturday and checked the shoes in the stores. I decided to buy these Nike Free Cross Compete which are specifically for such workouts.It was on 50% sale and I had a voucher too so it was a total bargain. 😉
I did my first workout with them on Sunday and they are perfect, much better than with the running shoes. They will be good for weight lifting as well because the sole is thin and my feet are stable on the ground.
