So most of you know all about the problems I've had with my back. Well, imagine hjow frustrating it was to learn I could front squat without my back hurting, only for it to hurt my knees!
I have found that I can stop knee pain in its tracks with the following warm up.
-side lying clams

(you all know whatw bird dogs are)
-hip flexor stretch
-that groin stretch where you push your knees out with your elbows.
-narrowing my stance slightly
and boom! No more knee pain. The most significant thing I think was how weak I was at side lying clams! My whole body shook. I barely got 8 reps the first time. I think I am going to add a few sets of this exercise every day just to strengthen it up a bit.
hopefully that gives some of y'all food for thought

thanks for the hints. i also observed that a too wide stance leads to knee pain, cause it's more difficult to point the knees in the same direction as the feet then.
