So these past couple weekends, a couple and friends and I have gotten together and played soccer. Somehow, I always manage to run into someone, and injuring (bruising?) my knee. The inside of my knee is tender, and I feel it when at the bottom of bodyweight squats. Last time this happened, I just skipped squats completely for the next workout or two, then it seemed to be fine. However, I don't really want to hinder my squat progress too much, so I was wondering if it is still okay to squat with a bruised knee (at a lighter weight). I am deloading from 140 to around 95, as per suggestion of a form check I posted, to make sure I fix my major buttwink.
So real question, skip squats due to minor knee bruising? Or will I be fine, especially since I am deloading 30% to work on form?
