hello. I just started weightlifting training about 3-5 months ago. I have been lifting weights for years but this was my first experience with the oly-lifts and training programs.
I recently started to develop pain in both knees. Well actually it’s more like a discomfort rather than a pain. The discomfort is mainly coming from above the knee caps. I think it’s called the super patellar pouch or something similar? I also get this weird tugging sensation on the outsides of my knee when I hit a very deep squat. Feels kinda like an elastic being pulled to it’s limit. It doesn’t really hurt but the sensation freaks me out.
Has anyone else felt these ‘pains’ before? How long did it last? Is there stretches or anything that will help?
