Thread: Sharp pain below the knee

  1. #1

    Default Sharp pain below the knee

    Hi
    in training tonight worked my way up on leg extensions ( have had a small niggling pain below kneecap for a few weeks) about to do my heavy set first rep ok and second then bang!! Really sharp pain below my right knee cap and could not continue any ideas or remedies for a fix.
    think leg extensions could be out of the loop for a few weeks

    I have knee pain also, years of abusing my body in the Army. Better to go heavy on squats for low reps, of lighter and higher reps? Any Ideas?

    Sounds like patella-femoral syndrome

    Taking time off might be an option, then again rest is for losers.

    Me too, when I broke my arm 4 years ago I told the Doctor, I could not afford taking time off so I benched heavy with a broken arm, did power cleans and all that. Fuck science and logic, we are bodybuilders.

    if you see this i want to say after my injury "less weight" not light weight but LESS weight and more reps is the way to go. i never feel pain unless i go heavy, i often do squat sets of 20 reps.
