    I'm there with you. Going on 2 months with my shoulder tendonitis and still isn't 100%. But like others said, you should still be able to do legs, back, biceps, triceps so it's not a total loss.

    Knee bothering me after squats

    It doesn't hurt but just feels kind of weak. Like it could buckle or something. Started feeling that a few days after squating. Anyone ever have that? Should I rest it for a few weeks? Thanks
