Re: LCL Sprain & Squats

Sam,

I'm not convinced that it is a LCL injury. But it is hard to give a definitive answer through an email. But My guess is you prob. have either hamstring or IT-band issues that are causing your pain. For the LCL to sustain an injury there has to be some type of stress (Varus Stress) on the knee. In a squat there is little stress placed on the LCL. What else causes your pain? What kind of warm up do you do? What kind of stretches do you do? (pre and post) workout.
