    I noticed that my knees get red/darker looking right after leg press and squats and the front portion of my ankle gets red pretty much right out of the gate during leg day. anybody else experience this?

    i'm sure it's harmless, but i'm curious if anybody else gets the same thing. i know the knees and ankles are under a lot of stress while doing legs so i have a feeling it's not out of the ordinary.

    I've never noticed anything really. Maybe your shoes are too tight?

    lol, i don't think so. i could give it a try, but they never seem tight at all, nor too loose. my knees were the things that were the most noticeable to me.

    i wouldn't worry about it too much unless they hurt. do they?

    when i do legs with one of my friends i notice that his knees get really red, but he's in no discomfort. so unless they hurt don't worry too much about it
