    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Funny feeling, not pain...

    Hey everyone,

    To keep this short, whenever I squat more than about 135lbs, my right knee feels a bit "funny". It doesn't hurt, just has a "full feeling" in it, if that makes any sense.

    I stopped squatting heavier back in the summer, but now I want to start up again. The most I've ever squatted was about 175 lbs (5x5) I weigh around 135-140 lbs.

    Any thoughts on what this might be or if I should be concerned?

    My legs are shoulder with apart, I squat below parallel and don't feel any "discomfort" otherwise.

    Thanks!

    Have you ever had any issues with your patella or any other parts of your knee? Also, post a thread in Newbietown introducing yourself. Its tradition

    Nope.. never had any prior issues before. Never really had any knee pain either. I mean I've front kicked a bag and didn't manage my range properly and felt some pain at that moment... but so far, no chronic pain.

    Try keeping your feet pointed out at 45 degrees and don't squat "below parallel" nor come all the way up locking your knees.
