Hope everyone is well, not posted in a while!
Anyway, I've been squatting now for about a year and on and off i've been getting a slight pain over the top of my knee caps. This affects both knees and I'm guessing its the tendon thats the problem. Maybe my tendons are slightly weak? I tend to do a max of 5 reps per set, dunno if going heavy all the time is taking its toll?
However, my main concern is that last week i noticed that when a do a squat and start to come back up again my left knee makes a scrunching noise sort of like screwing up a packet of crisps. Does anyone know what the problem could be? Ive googled this and it says i could have Osteoarthritis.
I didnt use to have any of these problems before I started squatting. Could my form be causing these problems? I tend to use a narrow stance which is less that shoulder width apart.
Thanks for any help
