I'd agree that checking your running shoes would be a good place to start. Poor-fitting or worn out shoes can give you all kinds of aches and pains. If you haven't already, I'd recommend visiting a specialty running/walking store where you can be properly fitted by a professional.

Hope that helps,

Coach Jen

3 things to start with:

- the age and fit of your shoes
- poor form with squats (I daresay 99% of people don't know how to squat properly)
- poor running gait

I've been doing various exercises such as running, zumba, strength training, and yoga and my knees have been hurting really badly! It's particularly noticeable when I do squats. What can I do help this pain and prevent future aggravation to my knees?
