Hey guys! I am on the last week of jim wendlers Boring But Big 3 month challenge. I have ran quite a few other powerlifting programs (i know BBB is not technically a powerlifting program) and have had 0 issues with injuries. However, recently my knees are starting to act up. The back of the knee sometimes swells and i can just tell something is off. The pain is a 1 on a scale of 1-10 at the moment. Personally, i think my knees are just beat up from squatting and doing conventional dead lift twice a week. I hate the idea of getting knee sleeves but, if it is crucial for longevity please let me know. All opinions are appreciated.
