I started working out 2 months ago, im technically not over weight and have a normal BMI but i feel like my thighs look like cellulite for some reason. Anyway, I was doing jogging on a treadmill for 3 miles and cycling for 3 miles and alternating between days of squats and lunges, crunches, push ups, and like wise youtube videos. I was ok except I somehow hurt my heel, but I am a lazy person so out of shape I guess. Then 6 days ago I started 30 day shred. On day 4 I got a sharp pain in my bad knee, I literally could not walk. It went away the next day but was replaced by an achy feeling in my knees and ankles. Day 6 it has increased to the point I really want to quit and sit on the couch ALL day tomorrow! It kept me up all night last night. I am in my 20's my joints shouldn't hurt this bad. I have been over every youtube video I feel my squat form is ok. My knees are certainly not extending over my toes. Is this because I am out of shape and will go away or should I stop? Had no pain before 30day shred and was doing squats and lunges daily. Also I started bare foot, how I have always worked out. Thought shoes would help and all they do is make my feet slide on the slick floor and make it harder to hold proper form with NO decrease in pain.
So very seriously ready to quit but I really, really would like to get rid of some belly fat and tone up my legs!
Also, I have actually gained 12lbs since starting, in 6 days! What is this devil workout?
