    Burning Tendons in Knee After Each Squat Set

    Last week I had a week off on deads, so I threw in some heavy front squats. After that, my right knee has had a burning sensation in the tendons above the kneecap after each squat set. It wasn't too bad but now it is getting pretty annoying and now kind of worries me.

    I have a feeling it is inflammation from too much stress. I hope that is all it is. Does anyone have any advice or know what may be wrong?

    If I were you I would look into a joint supplement, maybe glucosamine. I also would just do leg press next week and your regular leg day and give legs a day off from squats, and non impactful cardio like the bike for whatever cardio your doing...Come back from your week off and do back squats for a few weeks, if the feeling goes away after a few weeks try front squats again and see how it feels

    I take a glucosamine/MSM supplement I get from Costco once a day. After running out, I stopped taking it and my knee pain returned, started taking it again and it had greatly reduced after a couple weeks. I recommend it.

    Buy some knee sleeves and warm up properly before squatting. I used to have knee issues but ever since i started wearing my knee sleeves they feel good as new.
    Strength is more useful than weakness.

    This. Proper warm up is paramount to reducing many injuries including joint pains. My warm up is almost as long as my actual training.

    Probably patella tendonitis. Foam roll & stretch regularly. Rest squats if pain gets too bad or you'll be out of action for ages.
    If it gets too bad you can also look into PRP injections & other treatments.

    Thanks again guys for more tips. Unfortunately I have failed to warm up thoroughly lately. Usually just rolling out my back and no stretching :/.

    I WILL change this.

    Patella Tendinitis (jumper's knee) tends to be below the knee, I believe. It sounds like OP is describing right where the quad tendons attach above the knee cap, which is a place I get pain after a few sets of squats. I have been working with a chiro and one thing I find that really helps is using oil and the back end of a knife handle (not too thick and definitely not sharp) and rubbing it a lot to break down some of the tissue and draw blood into the area, with addition to icing etc.

    Will definitely be checking back, my knees are far from perfect and I am looking for more solutions to this.

    Good to hear. I recommend a high fat diet as well, anything but trans fats. Knee pain sucks, mine really develops if I ever get the crazy idea to do some running

    Knee chlamydia, seen it 1000 times. Really though make sure to warm up extra if you feel the need to, foam roll and start icing them a few nights a week or after workouts.

    Go to a physical therapist and see if you have collapsed arches. You almost certainly do. Make sure you knees track OUTSIDE (not above) your toes while squatting. Mobilize your hip joints and mobilize them some more. Mobilize your ankles.
    If it was easy, everybody would be doing it.

    Awesome, glad to hear you're feeling better. Voltaren is awesome and definitely helps, I forgot to say how much it has helped haha. Thinking about adding a glucosamine and/or fish oil supplement to help with general/joint health, only recently got a multivitamin that I stick with consistently.

    Also, nice lifts man, those are awesome stats! Lots of hard work has been paying off I'm sure.

    That's exactly what I have and focusing on pushing the knees out has cured the pain during squats right up, OP.

    Everybody thanks for posting.

    I have been rolling out my legs a whole lot before squatting. I roll the quads from the hip all the way down to the knee all the way around the quads. I then roll out my whole back down to my hams and I have to say that I feel much better! No more knee pain. I put light knee wraps on my knees when the sets get super heavy.
