I get slight knee pain on my left or the right knee whenever i squat. Even with bodyweight squats. The pain is very light like a 1 or 2 out of 10. Should i be wary and stop doing squats? How should i approach this? Should i stick to single legged work for a while? I have tried everything I have tried deloading to lower weights and doing higher reps, I have tried endless warm up sets make sure my body wasn’t lose. but i always get slight knee pain.
I’ve been having this pain since i started lifting i just ignored it since it wasn’t severe chronic pain, i managed to get upto a 210 squat, but i’ve been stuck with that same squat number for the last 5 or 6 months.
Lifting Background: I have been lifting on and off for around a year, I have a 185 bench a 210 squat and a 280 deadlift.
Would appreciate some help with this.
