Last night I tried to do squats on the Smith machine. Before, I had an exercise of bending down and moving a weighted plate. I couldn't bend down far enough for the squat and my knees really hurt. I was in total shock because I could do them with no knee problems several years ago. I really hope I didn't mess up my knees due to the weight. It makes me really sad.
Does deadlifts make anyone elses back hurt? Are there alternatives?
I am really upset. I want to do squats with weights.
Frustrating. I'll try it on a different day to see if I have the same thing happen. Another consequence of carrying too much weight on my frame. Geez.
