Newbie!!

Hi all, i put this in the beginners thread as not sure where else to put it,
I had been bodybuilding for 10 years until 2002, as i've been out of it for quite a while i class myself as a beginner again, started training again about 3 months ago, as i hadn't trained for so long i had got quite fat anyway after 3 months back in the gym the fat is slowly coming off and the muscle is definately building thanks to hard work and the right supplements!!! i'm getting my v shape back and have put a couple of inches on my arms, shoulders and chest, however for the last six months or so i've had pains in my knees when i go up and down strairs well lets say when ever i bend them obviously this makes it very difficult to train my legs!!!
when i bend them i can a noise like the sound of something stretching, anyone got anyadvice on this or how i can train my legs with this, also for as long as i can remember i've always had a problem trying to get my inner pecs to grow any advice?
and finally it's nice to find a decent forum that can tell me exactly what i need to know and that seems really friendly and helpfull,
Cheers you lo

    See a Doctor.


    I do a lot of push ups and sit ups. And I drink plenty of milk.

    Hi mate.  I have pretty screwed knees, sounds almost the same as your problem.  Only thing that is going to sort it is proper physio.   I went for an MRI, which showed that the tendon which joins the quad to the patela has torn, which in turn puts the knee out of balance, which grinds away the cartlidge over time, hence the noises and pain.  

    Inner pecks - stick to the compounds, you cannot target them on their own, you need to add overall mass for them to fill out.

    I have probems with mine but have overcome it by being sensible in that you warm them up properly pick exercises that don,t cause too much pain afterwards then week to week add small incriments in weight keep form perfect smooth as silk and things should get better the stronger the ligaments, tendons and muscles become, any sharp pain, STOP!! need any more info don,t hesitate to ask...
