ok, heres my problem. ive been training for about a year and was squatting 3x a week, for the past 6 months ive been squatting 2x a week cause since my numbers have gone up a lot 3x is just to much for me to handle.
just a ltitle info on me, im 5'8 185. i squat 290 for 5x5 on monday and 315 for 5x3 on friday. each week ill swap out on monday for 3x10 or so i keep from gettin stuck. Even light squats like 225 make my knees hurt.
my problem is as of lately the past 3 weeks my knees have really been starting to hurt during squats. both of them, on the inside and outside of my knee cap. i squat with good form i know that for sure. i think it could be the shoes im wearing but im wearing flat foot shoes so they should be fine for squatting.
its getting to the point where i have to cut my sessions down because my knees hurt so bad. im really thinkin about squatting 1 x a week or cut out squatting for 2 weeks to see if it fixes it.
anyone have any advise on what to do or if they have experienced this?
