looking for some advice.... 28/m 190lbs
I have been crossfitting for about 8 months and have dealt with minor elbow tendonits and overall soreness....I attributed that to pushing hard, I was able to start crossfit doing the WOD's rxd so I expected some minor discomfort..but this is new
I was attmepting a new PR on OHS 245lbs....got it up with pretty good form.:) the next day i experienced pain directly on the top of my kneecap almost like a bruise, and signifigant quad soreness..i took 3 days off and still have the same symtoms... :mad: I played football in college and never had any knee problems so I am a little concerned
tried some light running and tabata squats yesterday and i am still very sore and signifigantly weaker in my right leg
any suggestions???

Sounds like quad tendonitis or perhaps even a quad strain...

Ice, stretching the quad, rest and advil, and if it doesn't improve, see an ortho.
