    knee pain / strengthening the knees


    Recently my knees have been really bothering me... Sore, burning type pain in the shape of an upside down V on the top of my knees.

    I corrected my deadlift form and that helped a bit... I don't even bother squatting because that kills. I got some Dr scholla inserts for knee pain and that helped for a week or so...

    I stand at work for 6-8 hours in a shot and that seems to really aggravate it.

    Is there anything I can do to strengthen my knees?

    Thanks

    try knee wraps. my guess is a tendon is hurt. recheck your deadlift form - feet as close to the bar as possible. tendons just take time though.
