    Knees hurt when squating

    Been lifting for about 5 years, some months dedicated and others half assed

    About 4 months ago I did front squats, the week after my knees would hurt even when i was sitting down, decided to take a month off legs

    During that workout I didnt feel anything wrong, and before that workout I never had a problem squating any weight, I was doing 315lbs below parallel no problems


    These past few months I've been slowly getting back into squats but my knees just hurt when I do them and the week after, I havent gone past 135lbs

    It even hurts to do bodyweight squats, becUse of this I've kind of stuck to just doing stairs to work legs and that has seemed to help


    Any advice?
    -Some people say good things come to those who wait, truth is, good things come to those who work..... who work later.....who work harder...... who are willing to go further than anyone else to get them. If you're waiting for good things to come to you, you'll be waiting for a pretty long time.

    -I'd rather live life saying "I failed" than "I could have"

    You should be able to squat 135 lbs without a month of pain afterwards. Do goblets squats and work on your form, if it keeps up see a doctor.

    How strong are your hamstrings in relation to your quads?

    Might want to look into that. Any strength imbalance can cause major issues with the knees. Also going below par on a front squat would almost force your knees way out in front of you, putting more strain on the knees.

    Be safe brother.
