Default Knee pain when deadlifting

Old age has struck again!!!

When deadlifting, yesterday I experienced pain in the top of my left knee.


I was lifting with a mixed grip - dominant side ( right hand) underhand.

The lift was fairly heavy but not a max attempt. 315lbs

Everything else seems to feel fine (back, hips, glutes, etc)

The pain was sharp but not piercing ( a 7 on a scale of 10) andit has turned to a dull ache.

This is the first time deadlifting has hurt my knee.......... what do you think?
Form issue or just old fart syndrome? What could it be?

Sumo or conventional?

I have found at times that I get knee pain when the floor is uneven. I also get knee pain from sumos, perhaps from a quad imbalance. Hard to say.

If neither of these is the case it could have been blind misfortune, or a slight difference in foot angle while pulling.

Yeah, first thing I thought of was sumo or conventional. Makes a pretty big difference. I can't imagine putting too much stress on any part of the knee with conventional, as the lower back will almost always be the weak link of that movement.

I wear knee sleeves while deadlifting. And with doing so I don't have knee pain any more. You might want to try that if it continues to be a problem.

It was conventional. I had not thought of the uneven floor - that may have contributed here..... the facility is older. I will continue the RICE therapy for a few days and see where it goes. Thanks

As far as wraps go - I may try those.

I also used to have achy knees from Sumo. The knees used to really start aching when driving for longer than 1 hour and sitting in a movie theater. About 2 months after stopping sumo's, it went away and I have been fine ever since.

It likely was a combo of things like improper technique and simply the starting position of the knee when beginning the lift, and like you said, a dash of geezer, especially considering the knee joint.

Acute pain or did it come slowly? I'm thinking either an ACL tear, or femoral/patellar cartilage damage from what you're describing...

An MRI may be beneficial if the pain doesn't subside on its own.

Glad to hear it is doing better. And I agree; I only go to a doctor if absolutely necessary.
