    I was doing squats today and my knee was making some weird sounds. Like squish noises. I kept going but I was a little scared my knee was going to explode. is this common? Should I work through it or stop and rest?

    my knees crackle whenever i stand up after kneeling down. Been doing that since I was little.

    as long as you aren't feeling any pain I guess it's ok...

    Ive been putting icyhot on and around both of my knees before leg day, seems to make a small improvement in how they feel

    Pretty much what everyone else said- if it's just crackly noises with no pain, don't worry about it.

    .

    2 sets of 15 with a light weight. stretch out and do some body weight squats. then make sure you pyramid the weight. good to go!

    this

    and also it's possible to water to build up in the joints if you don't use them often (ie. sitting for long periods of time)
