    i get that too, mine is like a tendon on the side of each knee that rolls and pops.

    Knee wraps help, and taking a wider stance.

    My uncle-in-law is a personal trainer. I asked him about the same problem and he said to take one of those round foam things and roll the side of my leg along it to loosen it up. WOW. It worked well and I feel 100% better and I haven't had a pain in my knee from squatting since.

    It also has corrected my toes pointing outward on my squats.

    He said it was because the muscle that goes from a little below the side of my knee and up along the side of my thigh and hips was extremely tight. He also said this was an extremely common problem among people who squat.

    that's the IT band, i'd additionally stretch it.

    stand and cross one foot over the other, then bend forward. twist a little to the side of the leg that goes in front and you should feel the stretch

    Anything else? Mine does the same thing almost everytime I bend my leg, doesn't hurt, but it is f'ing annoying

    I've heard riding a bike helps "smooth" stuff out?


    True?

    Build Strength in the Knee By Doing T.K.E.'s and Do this at the start of the of each work out even before warm up daily. And use a litiment to get heat into the joint.Lighten up the weight for about 8 Weeks not going not going into any heavy weights that cause pain. You are goingto have to rep it out to build mass nothing above 70% or When alot of pain kicks in.

    I would Create a workout stress the knee area without very to go very heavy and help strengthing that area such as...

    TKE's 3sets to falure
    Leg Curls (Heavy)
    Leg Extensions (Single Leg)
    Front Squats
    Reverse Hack Squats
    G/H Raises
    Stiff legged deads

    Ref
    TKE’s (Terminal Knee Extensions) under Excersice Index in Rehab at Elite Fitness Systems
