The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    knees hurting when squatting

    During the last 5-6 weeks my right knee has felt weird when squatting. It starts to hurt right when I hit the parallel position. I've heard people say that going ATG transfers the weight off of your knees onto your hip flexers or something like that. I normally go parallel or just below, but when i go ATG it hurts my knee even more. If this was due to a form problem wouldn't both knees be hurting? I feel zero pain in my left knee, it even hurts when hack squatting, pretty hard to mess up form there. This injury only started when I went on Madcow's 5x5 and my 3rd/4th week into the program my knee began to hurt (you squat 3x a week, 2x being heavy). What could the problem be, and should I see a doctor?

    I should also note that even when i put on 135 which is pretty light for me, my knee still hurts so I dont think lowering the weight will solve the problem. Is there an exercise I can sub in for squats for a month and then see if that helps. Any suggestions would be great.
