I might have screwed up my knee during this stretch.....

I was doing something like this then i heard a loud buckle at this area of my knee:



it wasn't exactly very painful but i felt immediate soreness right there and when i tried the stretch again there was a bit of pain there.....

i knew i put too much pressure on the stretch putting my entire body weight on it... i gained a lot of weight from before like 20 lbs..... gained alot of upper body mass too

thanks please help.... did i tear something?

no one can reliably diagnose you here. go to the doctor.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

- Avishek

sunday: long very easy run 80+ mins @ 5:40+ (14+ km)
monday: strength/cross training
tuesday: extensive tempo (7 km) OR fartlek (mostly easy pace with mix of strides, hills, long tempo) 45 mins (8+ km)
wednesday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km)
thursday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km), strength/cross-training
friday: rest
saturday: short tempo 6-8x500 @ sub-4:00 (7 km)

strength would be:
- hops 2x10
- box jumps or ME SVJ 2x5
- squats 3x6-8 or weighted BSS/lunges 3x10/leg
- RDL/hypers 2x10-12 or SLRDL 2x10-12/leg
- upper push myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- upper pull myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- leg raises, holds, pallof presses

damn... you get it checked out yet?

man, we have to be so careful with stretching.. or avoid stretching completely. at this point, i've had too many injuries from stretching to actually think it's beneficial. stretching - proceed with extreme caution.
