    I have been having some knee pains, I will describe them, and provide a picture of where it hurts.
    The pain does not happen while I squat, but only after I get finished with a set, and obviously the heavier I go, the worse it is. I think it might be from rebound out of the hole, but I am not sure. It feels inflamed I guess, sort of like elbow tendonitis, but worse. I have included a picture fo where the pain is, I think the picture is of a left knee, so I circled the trouble area as if it was my left knee.
    I warm-up with bands, usually band pull aparts around my knees for the hips, it is the “yes” movement. Band good mornings, and some upper body band pull aparts and tricep extensions. I also do one leg exercise for my glutes.


    Anyway, I would appreciate some info, my squat form is really not going to change, but if someone wants to see that, I can post a video.

    Her is the picture

    i get this too, on the outside of my left knee. Never hurts during squatting or pulling, but hurts afterwards. Annoying as hell.

    Do you do a proper lowerbody warmup besides the bands? Magnificent Mobility for example? My knees are feeling sooooo much better after doing this plus foam rolling.

    Not really, I do band goodmornings and band hip pullapart things, I get plenty "warm" doing that, there si a ton of shit in MM my warmup takes about 10 minutes, I just picked the things I do based on what I felt would benefit me the most. If I need to change this, I would be open to specific advice as to why I should change it.

    My knees are slowly getting to be a joke. If I bend or squat down in any way they sound like twisting bubble wrap. Oh well. Fuck it.

    Is it inflamed at all? Whenever I have knee problems, I go to an acupuncturist and I swear that woman fixes everything wrong with my body.

    you ever foam roll your IT band? I dunno if it has anything to do with your current knee pain, but it always seems to help my knees when they are sore.


    you should also ask Charles Fay on the BAG forum about his gf's taping job. Charlie swears by it.

    apt sells the new ones which many peopel do not like nearly as much as the old knee sleeve. the old ones are much thicker.

    http://www.jackalsgym.com/store.aspx?cat_id=RH

    that store has the old ones.. they are the solid blue.

    i have the elbow sleeves of the new style and my shit fell apart within 6 months. not sure if ijust got so jacked it ripped some of the seems but its ripped. pretty lame.
