help!!! Past knee injuries

I am new to crossfit and have been doing the WOD for the last 2 months. The results that I have seen are incredible. The only problem that I'm having is my left meniscus, I've have two surgeries in the past on this thing and every time I do deep squats it swells up and I lose ROM and strenght. When this happens I have to put a smaller amount of weight on the bar. This is also affecting my Fran times and OHS. Do I need to do a full squat in these workouts i.e. I go just beyond the 90 degree angle when squating?

Thanks, Dave

Your form could be poor as to the Squat. Post question to Coach Rip on Strength Mill, or better yet, buy the book and insure you're squatting correctly, along with DL /PC and Press.
