The biggest safety thing for home yoga is a mat. They have mats for free at the gym. You also have the benefit of a professional instructor there to help keep you safe. I would not recommend doing stuff at home, as you don't know your own limits and don't have the equipment.

If you are worried about looking stupid in front of others, don't. It's an easy opener with chicks, and you might surprise yourself.

It's not that, it's just that my local gym doesn't offer any yoga classes (very small gym) and I don't want to switch gyms because I know a big reason why I do go to the gym regularly now is bc of how close the gym is to my house.

So any yoga would have to be done on my own at my house.

Ah. Having a mat is incredibly important for quality of work and safety.

You could always do some Diamond Dallas Page yoga. Not joking. It's a thing.

So, I was squatting the other day. I was doing a day with medium weight, so I was squatting around 185. I usually do 205/225 depending how I am feeling.

However, I was getting real nice and low and on the way up I felt a discomfort in my left knee. It was not a pain, but it felt weird, definitely not good. I stopped took a minute and finished the set. I rested and went to do my next set and about halfway through I felt it again, at that point I just stopped because I did not want to mess around.

Any idea as to what this might be?

It could be any number of things. Serious or not serious. You could either see a pro, or do what most people do and wait til it doesn't seem dangerous anymore and go back to lifting.

Hard to diagnose from this description. Ice, anti-inflammatories, elevation, and rest for 48 hours. If there is no improvement or worsening, go see an ortho.

I am having a hard time describing the feeling, myself.

It occurred when I was going back up from the squat position and its upper-outer part of the left knee. It felt almost like a stiffness, very dull feeling that felt funny, not painful though.

I'm not a doctor by any means, but do what bsaza said. Then after that, I'd try doing a real low weight like 135, and work your way back up to 185 to try and see if the feeling comes back.

Basically follow this.

After 48h, use a bodyweight ass to grass squat to check ROM and if there's any further pain. If no pain, follow Bills2083 advice and start off slow.

Knees are hard to diagnose w/o being hands on - could be a hamstring, IT band, lower back, or hip.

I have pain and other issues with my left knee at times. One of the trainers at CF Mayhem passed on a method for dealing with it that Rich used when he had knee issues in the past. Simply do multiple sets of 10 bodyweight squats every half minute for 5 or so minutes, focusing on using perfect form. I believe this helps build stability in the knee by strengthening the muscles around the knee, as well as helping you practice perfect squat form for when you're doing weighted squats. It has worked quite well. It sounds overly simple, but it works.

Not sure that's what will help Malaka, but it might be worth a shot.

I think this is important. It's like lifting weights: you don't walk into the gym and try to squat 300 lbs your first time around. Likewise, I can't do most of the yoga stuff that my 76 year old grandmother does, because she's been practicing yoga for about 30 years now.

Everybody is a beginner at some point, and you don't want to push yourself beyond your limits.

PR'd twice this week so far: 320 lbs. on squat, and 425 this morning on deadlift. I really need to max on bench to see how close to 1000 my total is. I am pretty sure it isn't 255, my bench has always sucked. But it is nice to be so close finally.

I strained this same ******* muscle in my back waking up yesterday. It's not nearly as bad and I should be ok by tomorrow/Friday, but **** it's annoying.

Before that though yoga/rock climbing is going pretty well along with lifting. Too cold to run anymore but those two definitely help that loss.

Still haven't gotten back to eating well 100% but I've been getting better. Just need to kick this awful sugar habit I've been on.

I haven't been able to shake my sugar/carb habit for the past month. I've been eating out a lot which has led to my problems.

Eating healthy is hard. Especially when everything around us is processed.

Agreed. I can eat healthy certain periods of time, but I always go back to being an inconsistent eater. One day I eat well, the next I don't. One thing that helps me is trying not to bring unhealthy food into my home. If it's not there when I go to the fridge, I'm not gonna go outta my way to get it. Unfortunately, that doesn't help when I'm out of the house.

I have a cheat meal day built into each week, it makes it easier to make good decisions the rest of the week. It is unfortunate that actual good food is either hard to make or doesn't taste the best.

I just have to get into the habit again and I'll be fine. I ate "well" for 2+ years while I was in college and would have a good few months after that, but I haven't had more than a few weeks since I moved to Texas (6 months ago) where I've been consistent.

My upper back was in serious pain the last 5 days. To a point where it was almost intolerable, I've been putting on icy hot patches every day, stretching it out as much as I can, but I still felt a throbbing pain the entire day.

I think I might have used some poor form on my squats last week and it messed my back up.

So I went light with my squats yesterday. I only did high rep dumbbell squats and worked on my form. I didn't get much of a workout from it, but I needed to do something, I didn't want to miss a day. And I figure I can practice my form by going lighter.

Today my back is starting to feel better. It wasn't throbbing when I woke up, and so far I don't have any pain. I'm gonna try to keep good posture at my desk (I fall into bad habits of slouching).

Today is back/chest day, so maybe hitting the weights will get me back in order.

I usually go to the gym 4 to 5 days a week but last week I only went twice. I skipped Monday this week, went yesterday. I can't miss too many days, I don't want to get sloppy again.

You might look at getting a foam roller for back pains and other pains. Not sure what the problem is for you of course but in general rolling over a foam roller helps quite a bit. You might google myofascial release.

I bought one of those curved back stretchers from CVS after work yesterday and it seemed to help a bit. I'll look into the foam roller as well, thanks.

I think a combination of stress, poor form in my squats, and bad posture at my desk has led to my upper back pain.

If it persists I'll get it checked out, but MRIs are expensive and I'm a contractor so my health insurance sucks.

I would think the ACA would be helpful to people in your situation. But then again I don't really know anything about the ACA.

Ever since I started working full time, I haven't stepped into the gym in about 3 months. I can't imagine what getting back in there is going to be like. I set myself the goal of getting a routine going before Halloween. Not to mention how terrible I've eaten. I've quite literally watched myself lose all my gains over the last 3 months. Thank god it's fall/winter.
