There are books written about this kind of stuff.

Knees giving you problems? Check your saddle height or your cleat adjustment. May have nothing to do with training.

I try to stick to bench presses and wrist-rolls. My knees have never been injured while doing these.

If your knees hurt due to cycling, it is often caused by pushing too hard in too big a gear. Learn to spin. It will improve your performance on the bike and save your knees. Also, be sure to have at least one recovery day between every hard workout, and don't at more than 10% per week to your training volume. Check your seat height too - if you're more specific about where your knees hurt, you might get more detailed advice.

Your knees should not hurt you during your workouts. After the workouts your knees might hurt a little,I thnk thats normal.You might want to cheack your seat hight,if it is to low than you will put to much presher on your knees. Ask someone who looks like than know what they are doing to check your leg extention.
