I work out a lot, and I've noticed that I feel little twinges of pain in my knees, mainly during lunges and squats. My knees are sometimes a bit sore after class but the soreness is usually gone within a few hours. It comes back when I start exercising, though...twinge, twinge, twinge. I haven't traditionally had knee trouble, and I don't want to do any permanent damage. When I start to feel pain, I definitely reduce the intensity of my workout (no jumping, don't squat as far down) and it helps. Is this normal, or should I be concerned? Note: I weigh 239 pounds but I have been exercising regularly for a decade so it's not a case of too much, too soon. Thank you!
