Should I wear wraps when doing full squats if I get knee pain?
heat should help getting the synovial fluid lubricating the joint.
you could also try some supports. but i wouldnt go for wraps.
wraps really aren't to prevent pain, they are to help you lift more
probably patellar tendinitis. Patella tendon straps might work. I could be wrong though as the exact cause of pain is unknown.

Rehband or Tommy Kono
And check your foot placement and knee tracking, if you haven't already.
Put your toes agianst a wall. Go through squat motions. Knees shouldn't hit walls.
How do you do that without falling ass backwards? Just tried and and feel on my ass whopps, couldnt get enough front body lean
Point your toes out a little bit, make sure your knees are straight over your feet and aren't canted in or out.
This http://www.webs.uidaho.edu/strength/back_squat.htm is a good video and tips for it. In the stills you can see how the knees/calves aren't deflecting out or in.
Damn thats a nice weight room
extend your leg like a leg extension and watch the movement of your patella (kneecap)...does it move fairly straight backward or does it move toward the outside?
Straight on my right one, outside on my left one
Went back and did them today, and did 150lbs at 3x6 holy shit that was fucking hard
If you dont have anything to say
your knees are obviously weakminded
ok, i was going to be nice, but i'll say it, thats weak
150x6 is like jonno territory
Yea I didnt think it was some ungodly number
i didnt say you did, but to get knee pain from 150...
Ive already had my left knee replaced once
they replaced your whole knee? wtf did you do to it
Crashed into a tree
