Repetition injuries turn up if you over do it, your quote "I work out at least 5 days a week, sometimes twice a day. I do both strength training and cardio. Strength training only 3 of those days."

Go to the doctor and get it checked out, you may have given yourself a injury doing too much with not enough rest.. Walking is a good rest day activity don't need to workout 5 days a week unless bodybuilding, body builders don't always listen to their body needing rest either..
Pain has nothing to do with physical fitness gain..

Hi Andrea,

When it comes to questions like these, we do recommend that you pass this by your physician who can do an assessment on your situation. While SparkPeople is a wonderful community of support and encouragement, it is outside our scope to even begin to guide you as to what could be going on with your knee. The body is very complex, especially when it comes to injuries as many times the source of the pain, is no where close to where you are experiencing the pain.

I wish you well.

I am not sure what's going on, but when go for a squat or evening sitting to standing my muscles behind my knee down into my calf began to tighten. It feels like the tighten of a charlie horse w/o the pain. And when I bend or sit the same tighten is now in the front of my knee. Any ideas?????????

I work out atleast 5 days a week, sometimes twice a day. I do both strength training and cardio. Strength training only 3 of those days.
