knee pain during single leg romanian deadlifts

And i have no idea what the cause is. Could it be poor hamstring flexibility?

Re: knee pain during single leg romanian deadlifts

Patient: My knee hurst when I do this.
Dr: Don't do that.
lol

Anyway...is it sharp or dull pain, every time, just with this movement? Could just be ole' fashioned excessive force. Are you warming up enough?

Its a dull pain, every time, and yes, just with this movement. I can squat, do the lift with both legs on the floor and everything is fine knee-wise. Im only using 25 pound dumbells right now and it still hurts :\.

Re: knee pain during single leg romanian deadlifts

I'm no Dr., or Steve Low, but I would assume it's some sorta torsional issue. And believe it or not I'm going to resort back to my "dr. joke." If it hurts don't do it, but in this case lower the weight until it stops hurting, then build up from there. And check your form.

More pressure on one knee than we're you're doing something on two. Possible joint instability as well.
