I had no idea where to post this so here goes.
I seen posts on knee wraps and for 4 years I have not trained with any type of suppose structure. Belts wrists elbows knees nothing at all.
Before setting out on my pursuit of muscle. I had 2 major injuries going in. I torn meniscus right knee and a herniated disc in my lower back.
Within the last few weeks I have developed aches in my knees and back.
One time the morning following a work out last week this knee buckled when getting up in the morning. I almost fell down the stairs. Having your leg give out on you is not a good sign.
I have not had time to see a Dr or anything due to schedule and work. And also he is a bit of a jerk and would tell me to stop working out as he frowns on it due to the excessive gain in mass in the past 4 years that he tells me is unhealthy. “smirks yah right”
So for giggles I tried a belt and front squats everything is fine and normal in my back, but the aches in the knees are still there. With a grinding sound that is a little more pronounced then before.
Would a knee wrap be good to consider under these conditions? But only for deads squats and leg presses.
