Towards the end of my 3rd week of my Bill Star 5x5 program, the tendons around my knee caps hurt. I've stopped doing squats since then, but 3 weeks later it still hurts to do deep squats, (even lifting my arse of the toilet hurts my knee tendons)
I really miss squats and want to get back into it.
A little about myself. Squats aren't my strong point, my 5 rep max is 185. I do deep squats and just noticed that my knee may be going pass my toes and sometimes I lean forward during hard squats and push on the toes/ball of the feet.
Any sugestions on what caused this?
Did I over work it? The 5x5 program had me doing more squats in 3 weeks than I've done in prior 6 months.
Any suggestions for rehab workouts? Sled?
Why is it taking so long to heal?
Thanks in advance, I recently lost my job and don't have medical
