    My husband tore both of his patellas in football. It’s been many years but he experienced knee pain if he does squats so he stopped for about a year. We then tried to program him heel elevated back squats and after the second week he has knee pain again. Same with front squats. He seems to be okay on a hack machine. Do you think it’s the stability part of having a barbel on his back that causes pain?

    Do you think trying back or front squats on the smith machine might be worth a try and if that hurts just call it quits for that movement?

    Thank you Bryce I will simplify it more. Maybe see if with less knee flexion won’t cause pain. It’s just strange to me even when he’s warming up he has pain but with hack squats and even Bulgarians he won’t have pain.
