    Knee pain from too many squats plz help

    Knee pain from squatting, when will it go away? I've been doing squats everyday for 3 months. Three days ago, I got a sharp pain in both knees, the inner side. Now I know I have to work on my techniques, but first I have to let the knees rest. I'm taking ibuprofen, and today is day 3. When can I expect this acute pain to calm down?

    Could be your form (esp. knees caving in under load). Could also be a muscle imbalance from not doing enough glute and hamstring work (e.g. RDL, hip thrusters, leg curl machine etc).

    Squat should strengthen the muscles around the knee and protect it. I have had a knee operation many years ago and only have about 1/3rd the cartilage that others do - and I can testify to this.
