It has always seemed like my knees have been a little weak. Sometimes I run up the stairs and a knee buckles.
That being said, only now has it been affecting my lifting.
I haven't done anything of notice to hurt them lately.
Even going down in the squatting position puts weird pressure on it. I went last week and immediately quit. I went this week and got through it, but I feel like I'm risking injury because I can still feel the pressure. Also, feel like I'm favoring the other leg now, which I imagine can't be good.
I squat with proper form, or so I like to think. I do "heavy" weight at sets of over 300. I also often leg press. Other than that, can't imagine what is directly stressing my knees.
So all that said, I suppose the question is, what should I do...
Skip legs until I feel better?
Lower the weight?
Continue legs (assuming it feels fine) but skip the squat and/or leg press for a bit?
Quit crying and risk injury?
