    My knees are really flexible from a lot of stretching.

    lots of these:





    also pausing in the regular squat position with no weight:





    pausing in the squat position with weight:





    dynamic hamstring stretches:




    static hamstring stretches







    And a lot of bike riding. i.e. anything ultra low intensity, high volume, low impact. elliptical, bike, stepper, rower. doing these things frequently will bring blood into the area and promote the healing process. if you don't provide a stimulus for your knee to heal itself, it won't.




    I'd also invest in some cissus quadrangularis from primaforce, and some grape seed extract.

    awesome bro keep it up.

    I also take advantage of pausing in the squat position, and it does wonders for me in increasing "out of the hole" strength. You could also try one of DC's methods for stretching that is going to the leg extension machine (or any seat down machine) and sit on one foot, push the knee down, and lean back.

    ..btw, I like how the guy in the background took "extra" long to put those weights on while watching ya,... haha!

    What kind of squat shoes do you own? Nice squat brother. More people on this board need to actually lift some heavy weight.

    yea I am competing in it, and I will be competing raw. I'm siked!

    hopefully I'll get 585 squat, 385 bench, and 630 deadlift. squat will be the hardest to attain out of the three, but I think I can do it. as long as I get a 1600 lb total. maybe I can bump up the deadlift if need be.

    how bout you, are you gonna compete in it?

    Incredible! Bench shirts and squat suits have made the sport a frigging joke over the years. RAW is the only way to lift. Powerlifting is abot as credible as WCW wrestling these days.
