more of a query here

I was doing a lot of overhead bar work yesterday, snatches, overhead squatting etc...

Nearing the end of the workout my hands started to feel weird. By weird i mean they have the same feeling you have if you have had your hands in the cold for a prolonged period of time then put them into hot water... you know the strange not quite pins and needles type of feeling.

This feeling persisted throughout the night and after a sleep the feeling has subsided somewhat but is still there.

Just wondering if this is normal and/or what is causing it?

As i say, i have experienced this feeling loads of times hitting the showers after rugby in freezing Scottish winter however it is usually gone within an hour at most whereas this has been going for over 16 hours now.

I would also like to get people's opinion on knee clicking.

I have had a double knee arthroscopy about a year ago. Before that i was squatting 200kg but now i go for far more modest weights (not going above 120kg yet) because in a way i am really paranoid about my knees. Anyway, I am getting a slight clicking in my knee on decent, there is no pain and no sound i just feel it. I am not sure if this has always been the case and it may be nothing or if it is just happening now. I am also concerned that it may be something to worry about. So how common is this within the community?

Notes on above - After surgery i felt the clicking in physio had an mri done and there was nothing of concern. The physio said it would go away with leg strengthening of the inner teardrop part of my quad but alas it has not done so yet. It is now approx 6-months since my last physio date.

Re: more of a query here

1. OHS/snatch = less severe form of nerve impingement

like this wfs

Solution = do more mobility work with shoulders (stretch/foam roll lats, pecs, teres major, etc), t-spine (foam roll), don't hyperextend neck, etc

2. Clicking
