I have recently been diagnosed with minor patellar and quadriceps tendinosis, which is a bitch.
After having 4 weeks of off-time from squats and olympic lifts, I started training again.
I started very low (80kg) with a 5x3 scheme, three times a week. I increased this by 2.5kg each week.
This worked out fine for some weeks, until I started closing in on 100kg's again.
The day after training, I feel really stiff over the knees.
It does go away with the couch stretch (ref. Kelly Starret), so I've started doing it before bed and after I get up in the morning in addition to post-workout.
This does help, but the knees still get a bit stiff.
I'm also foamrolling (Rumble Roller).
I've also got a pair of Voodoo Bands, which I haven't used in a while..
Does anyone here have experience with this kind of injury?
What worked for you?
