guys, I've got an old recurrent knee injury from about a year ago. it appears that doing some o-lifts aggravates the problem, I presume from the deep squatting involved. I do the usual, ice, dmso, glucosamine etc. Anyone else with similar problems? Any pssible solutions for technique or strengthening perhaps?

I would advise going to see your MD, he or she will probabley refer you to a pysical therapist who will be an immense asset in dealing with this problem and helping to prevent its return!
Good luck!

Just my .02 worth.

If this is a long standing problem that has not gotten better with rest and the pain is present upon the flexion of the joint, you very may well have a cartilege (miniscus) tear. This will require surgery in most cases. The good news is the procedure is quite easy and recovery is very quick. I've had three or four and have been able to get back to brazilian jiu jitsu/judo (full speed) in about 4 weeks in each case.
