Well, heres how it happened. I’de been doing a basic program for awhile, and decided to switch over to the Designer Athletes program with preformance in mind. This came with an increased squat volume for me. I began doing doing 5x5 Squats or DL’s on my lower body days (Lower, Rest, Upper, rest, lower, rest, upper, rest…ect)
So, I just finished my first week or so, and the day after my DL workout, I have a kneee pain above my patella. Doc says it’s some kind of Quadraceptice-Patella something or other, and I can’t squat for a week or two unlees I’m feeling much better, and I have to start wearing knee braces :. I do A2G squats and I’m asking right now, what part of my form could have contributed to this injury?
It’s only my right knee, my left is fine. I’m very confused, as I’ve done squats plenty of times before. Could it have been the deadlifts somewhow (as I did them rarely before starting this program, th=ough I did start off on a low weight for me ~135lbs)??
Any help or redirection to help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
