My Knee

I have an injry with my left knee. It gets stiff and sore and aches occasionally through the day.

If I squat with no weight, it hurts.

If I squat with say 50 lbs, it feels ok.

I have no idea whats up with it…its a nagging thing thats holding me back from squating heavy, I dont want to strain it. it jsut makes no sense to me it hurts less with weight on it.

Also it hurts more if i do a machine that emphisizes quads than a squat does

This has been going on for 3 weeks or so.

Any advice on how to rehab it?
