    Thanks for the help guys.

    I’ve always squated and tried to push
    my knees out but with feet pointing out slightly as per Rippetoe but the pictures in BASL show KStar feet forward knees way outside his feet.

    It’s the photos in the book that I think are the problem.
    I’m pretty sure my problem started after reading BASL and changing my squat position to feet forward knees outside of my feet.

    I’ll look into an MRI and lay off going heavy for now.

    What do you think about returning to my old squat stance and going light on the weight until the knees improve and I can improve my mobility?? old squat stance and going light on the weight until the knees improve and I can improve my mobility??

    I did think my ankle and hip mobility were pretty good but I guess not quite good enough!! 🙁

    I’ve not had an MRI but I’ve used mcmurrays test. I don’t thinks it too serious but I don’t want it to get any worse.

    Thanks again Kaitlin

    I’ll see if there is any improvement when I work out tomorrow, if not i’ll look at mobilising other area’s with a bit more intent. Process of elimination I guess.
    I’ve just watched the mwod on box squats, something I’ve never really done so will give them a go as well.
    I’ve not had anyone check my technique but have seen a few people posting on here asking for feedback so maybe i’ll do that.
    Thanks

    Thanks for the replies guys.

    In answer to your questions, my ankle ROM is pretty good, I can get into a pistol position and hold it, so I guess that’s not the problem, I have been mobilising daily but was taking more of a carpet bomb style approach to it,   (just trying to hit as many different areas as possible, and see what changes happen), Barbell quad/adductor smashing, IT Band rumble rollling, Calf bone saw and a few more. I also have been using the couch stretch, (the on the couch version not the leg up a wall version) as the leg leg/wall version was giving me a bit of discomfort in my knees)but did not really see an improvement in my knees, although a lot of the other tissues did feel massively improved!!
    For the last few days, 2 or 3 times a day, I have spent more time working on my supra patella pouch and smashing my calves with a ball which seems to have calmed things down a little, but wasn’t sure if this was just because I haven’t squatted since Monday.
    Do you think I should wait until the heat in my knees completely goes before returning to squats or just keep mobilising and working out??
    Thanks for your time guys.
