Here’s another YouTube video of K-Star discussing knee issues. The key source of knee pain relates to squat mechanics. Generally, if you find your knees traveling forward excessively, you’re probably going to have some knee pain. The fix for knee pain is to fix your squat, keeping those shins vertical or close to vertical (the positioning will differ slightly for other squats like the front squat, but that’s another discussion).
