Knee alert...  patella tentar yadu yady ya.. it is call i believe.

It is affecting my squat.. as well as my jump..

i can still jump... with a bit more rest in between reps.  but squatting had becomes pain in the ass with dull pain..

It affected me so much, that.. i can only squat 340lbs a few reps.. (just months ago i was doing 385 3x3 easily)

I guess. i need to REST my knee.... (it is currently my strength Phase anyway)

What would you guys says, If just replace all my squat with Deadlift?
(i mean i could be doing RUSSIAN squat program with deadlift with different set of Weight of cause... or i can just go do some deadlift 5x5  monday wednesday friday)

I consider Deadlift less demanding on my knee..(may be more demanding on my lower back... if i am not careful)

have to take care of your knee.... i have generally had decent knee.... take msm, and joint fluid supplement, ice, massage (sometimes knee issue is caused by tight quads and other muscles)

finally if nothing helps, rest and see a specialist is the best route.

I take Glucosamine Supplements and form roll now days

and started icing extensively after exercise and have a 15 min infra light session before sleep daily.

Not going well.
i think... i am jumping too much.

i mean.. I had been doing this for the pass 8 or 9 years.... and my knee were fine... untill now.

Many bro here was telling me how lucky I am.. as i am jumping on concrete floor.

I guess.. now.. is the time.. to take a break.

I was wondering i can can.... preform Box jump.. since it will take away the Landing impact.

but after jumping a few times.. i think.. much of the LOAD happen during the Pre Jump Loading phase....
with that in mind,  Jumping should be prohibited (regardless of the landing)

now.. i need to stop myself from jumping.

if squatting and jumping are causing pain, stop doing both. dead lifts, if you can do them without pain, are also a good strength-building exercise. they're obviously different from squats but it sounds like you might need to mix things up a little bit at the moment anyway, given the apparent injury.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.
