Thanks Charlie. This is good stuff. I need to buckle down and stick to these recommendations.

For the record, I went to the chiro today and I mentioned my knee. Apparently my IT band is exceptionally tight causing me to miss quite a bit of internal rotation which may be causing my knee pain. I guess foam rolling it isn't enough

Not really. It was simply ice and stretch....I was in a time crunch so I didn't have much time to discuss it.

Strengthen your glute medius

Also, very light RDLs would probably be useful for rehab if its chronic.

Kelly Starrett has a bunch of great videos for you to check out.

Dealing with "knee-itis":

Here's one on the IT Band:

The first stretch in this one feels like it really opens up my IT band-related muscles:

...I like to really to do the "informed freestyling" he talks about in this video with that stretch (see below). It feels like I am cranking on that ITB area really well.

If you have a weak glute medius, then step-ups onto a low box with a 2-1-1-1 tempo or even a 3-1-1-1 tempo will light it up. I like about 12 reps, load as necessary. I like to dorsiflex the non-working leg to try and ensure I don't assist the concentric portion at all. Like this video, but with a longer eccentric:

Thanks for those Ben, I have been looking at alot of Kelly S's videos lately. Something that helped immediately was stretching the quad between squat sets. I was shocked at how little pain there was the first time i tried it.

I found the stretch around 30secs in was the most effective: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CjGn-83ZQUk
