I’m sure this question has been asked before, but I would like some input and advice with the situation.
Okay I have in and out of doctor offices for the last couple of weeks dealing with a liver issue. My liver is fine thank god, I have stopped most supplementation and rely heavily on whole foods now though.
Anyway, back to the point so I’ve been in and out of so many waiting rooms and I have been worried for so many weeks that I need some other way to discuss my problems than just calling a doctor.
I have a slight pain in my right knee when I go below parallel with my squat. There is a clicking sound whenever I squat that low inside or outside of the gym. My knee doesn’t click on any other exercise and it doesn’t hurt. Now one of the trainers in my gym said I was going to low and taking my knee out of a correct range of motion, because as I have read the knee has a gliding range of motion and somehow going that deep might knock mine of it’s “track”.
I have heard that 90 degrees is weak for your knees and then again I’ve heard that going to low places tremendouse shearing forces on the knee.
I don’t understand why squatting seems so hard for me. I have read alot of articles and posted before. I have improved in my squatting but I can’t go ass to the grass. Will just going to parallel rob me of all the benefits?
Any hope or comfort on the issue would be greatly appreciated and any words you have would make my training efforts that much more enjoyable.
Thanks in advance.
