    when i squat down ass to grass, with no weight, my left knee area feels like my calf is too thick to squat. i know, weird explanation. it feels like it's swollen there. and when i come up and put weight on it, it hurts like from the top of my calf thru the front of my shin.

    so it looks like squats are out for awhile.

    i think jumping rope did it. it's the only new thing i've been adding to my workout.

    either that or i twisted it surfing or something. dunno.

    Not really, well trained hands and physical tests can be just as effective as an MRI

    my calves have felt pretty weird too lately. atg squats seem to bug them. I gotta foam roll that area more consistently.

    yea i dont know what the deal is. it kind of feels like it wants to hyperextend easy. and when i think about it, i might have done this running a few weeks ago.

    running + my knees = bad news.

    dunno

    i just know it hurts like hell to stand up from ass2grass position, even without weight.

    unless i put all my weight on my heel, then it's not as bad.

    Try squatting to parallel only. Once you pass the 90 degree marker, a much higher percentage of the weight is placed on your knees... something you might want to keep in mind.

    i can squat to parallel just fine (without weight. i havent tested it with weight on my back)

    the problem is i'm trying to learn to surf and surfing requires you to stand up from a low low ass2grass position.

    i'll have to find a way around it or just take a break until it heals.

    Not the smartest thing to do but if my knees start hurting while I squat I put something called Liniment on... it's a horse icy hot. :mamoru: You don't feel shit once you put it on.
