Is there a correlation between how much you can’t squat and how much you can do on leg extensions? My leg extensions are almost half of my one squat max and I feel I should be able to do nearer to the squat weight . Any advice much appreciated.
Hi all, So I've had a little accident in the gym last week Friday. Usually have a spotter when I'm doing squats, but this time I was by myself. Thought I'd do a last set of six 120kgs squats. Wrong decision. The very last rep I went down and couldn't get the bar up at all. I was in a deep squat position as I was doing my squats deep. I knew I would have to get the bar off my back. So I lowered myself backwards (as in sitting on the floor), and that way the bar fell onto the safety grips. I stood up, continued my workout, but when I went to the leg press I could feel a sharp pain right in the corner under my knee cap on the outer side. It is a very acute pain that I get when I do a certain move. A standing quads stretch is one that really triggers it. I've seen a physiotherapist who thinks it's an issue with the fat pad. As I understand he believes it was compressed and is somewhat inflamed. Has anybody got experience with this type of injury and could let me know how they got on with it? I don't feel it when I do normal activities, but I'm very conscious of it so I'm somewhat restriction the movements that I make. Any experience is welcome! Thanks all.
