For the past month and a half, I’ve been doing Sheiko routines. I finished #29 and had great success - added around 20lbs to my Bench, 15lbs to my Squat, and 10+lbs to my Deadlift. Now I’ve been doing #37.
After finishing 29, I took it relatively easy for a week because I had some shoulder pain and pain in my right knee. The pain subsided for both, but now that I’m in the swing of #37, the pain creeped back. I can get through my squat routines dealing with the pain, it’s not that bad, but I would like to hear any suggestions on how to remedy it. After some researching, it seems it’s a clinical case of quad tendonitis.
I squat with a medium width stance, high bar, and I squat deep. I use Chuck Taylors. If I squat wide stance with a low bar, the knee pain isn’t that bad, but it aggravates an old lower back injury. Would wearing a shoe with an elevated heel reduce the stress on my knee?
If anyone else has had experience with something like this and/or suggestions solutions, I’d much appreciate it. Thanks.
