It's been 8 months since my ACL reconstruction surgery. I got back into cardio at the end of my workouts, jogging at 6.0 with no discomfort (I tried 7.0 but it put too much pressure on the knee, which could've had more to do with the treadmill and shoes I was wearing). I also do the Stairmaster every other day, but it's a bit annoying because I can feel my knee clicking every time my surgically repaired knee straightens out and then bends to take the next step. Again, the doctor said this was fine and said it should reside when the swelling does. I was also able to do a fitness class full of lateral movement and squats, which was tough at the end of an hour, but it felt great to get back into athletic form.
