I've been lifting for about a year, and have already started to get some specific pains, which I'm not happy about.
One, my spinal erectors are quite strong compared ot the rest of my body, i never get lower back pain, can do hypers with 75lbs on my back etc, but i get a sharp pain between my scapula, like the top thoraxic/ bottom cervical vertebrae. i just finished some deadlifts today and thats where im sore.
what exercises can strengthen these erectors? front squats? good mornings?
Two, i have knee pain in my right knee, its okay when i squat deep ( i squat really really deep) but if i try something like a lunge or a leg extension, theres also a sharp pain right above the patella, whats the deal with this? am i fucking up on form?
i take 2 flax caps and 2 fish oil caps with every meal so about 12 efas per day, i really want to fix these problems. i can ease the back pain with bridges and a roller, but the knee one im stumped
