    Let's face it the average person is half a foot shorter and probably 100lbs lighter so your knee is taking a beating in everyday life. Maybe try wearing one of those knee supports for a month to give the tendons and ligaments a break so you can rehab it again.

    Edit: someone broke down in front of me at an intersection yesterday holding up peak hour traffic. Put the hazards and handbrake on, jumped out of the car, channeled my sled pushing days and hoped for the best getting down nice and low. She momentarily had her foot on the brake and had to sharply turn the car 90 degrees which made it a lot harder but I got it going pretty fast. I figured if the knee was toast it'd have popped right there. Didn't really think that one through, just reacted.
    Thanks for the kind words, Dom. I actually purchased that McDavid knee brace you recommended. I got the XXL and it should be here sunday. I am hoping that if I strengthen my quad it'll help with the right knee pain. Now the left knee is starting to hurt because I've been compensating while going down the stairs I think.

    What's really weird is that the knee pain is not constant. It is only sometimes. Like sometimes i can fully squat with no pain. Sometimes I can walk down the stairs like a normal humanbeing. But there is a big mental block; like I am fearful of the sharp pain so i am always guarded. Seems the worst when I slowly bend to less than 90 degrees

    Hopefully the knee brace + collagen will help

    Manly, interesting to listen to the best in the world discuss bench. Higher frequency makes perfect sense for strength.

    ^ Been watching Eddie's youtube allot lately, probably the most entertaining channel I know of at the moment, him and Brian Shaw are hilarious together also, Eddie cracks me the fuk up

    Been along time Manly, thanks for the info on my issue the other day. I can't believe you're still dealing with this knee bullchit, that really sucks bro I hope it gets fixed soon. Definitely do everything and anything you can for it, take all of the experienced guys advice on here and get multiple opinions from multiple doctors (sports doctors). I'd get an MRI at this point to see wtf is actually going on if you haven't yet.

    I know I'm probably beating a dead horse with my advice here, but I care and I wanna see you lift some heavy ass weight so work on that mobility FOSHO. Yoga, stretching, foam rolling, physical therapy, deep tissue work, lacrosse ball work, make sure you're not immobile or tight/knotted up anywhere, fix any muscle imbalances if there is any, i.e. Quads to Hamstring strength. Most injuries happen from a mobility issue and it can be painful to fix. Get on those joint supps too, I've been needing to get more as well, Curcumin should help also (Dr's Best curcumin w/ orange top). Getting blood flow to the area should help recovery too, a simple half hour on the bike w/ not much resistance should aid in recovery.

    There's so many different things you can do to combat injuries, it just takes allot of time, work and pain lol

    Hope all is well my friend
    Boom

    Solid advice that some of us will read and go "sounds good" but then rarely do it. I occasionally use a foam roller when there's an issue but that's it.

    Recently picked up an extra firm therapy ball for myofascial release which is just a harder lacrosse ball (previously tried a tennis ball which was completely useless) and all I can say is I wish I'd put the time in with this years ago. A foam roller feels good for the upper back and legs but for everything else now I'm a fan of the ball. You've got to be disciplined with this kind of therapy between workouts so you can perform at your best when you're at the gym.

    And of course the older you get and the longer you've been training the more important all this is.
