well a couple years ago, I use to take break-dance classes. Unfortunatly, a month or two into it, my knee started hurting, so I got a knee brace (which helped for a bit). Then after a week or two it started hurting again, so I just figure I had bad knees.
Now that I am taking bodybuilding seriously I worry about injuring my knee and then getting surgery on it
When I started working out my legs (recently) I did not do squats, afraid of my knee getting worse. So I went to the 45* leg press. However my knee is hurting again (im guessing from work, standing for 8ish hours with most of the time my knees locked)
I am wearing the brace at work now, and I will probably where it again when I g2 the gym. Is the 45* press ok for me to continue? or should I change it? Also, should I stop deadlift?
