    I can now squat with my left knee. Here is how:

    Most people can use bad form with body weight squats and not feel knee pain till they are lifting heavy weight. They have until then to correct their form, with light stuff just being practice.

    My right knee is not quite that forgiving, and does not allow running or jumping, but it can tolerate small errors in form, allowing me to body weight squat without supervision, no pain from the right.

    My left knee though has pain when I squat even close to parallel, or so I thought. It turns out if I left lunge and look right down at my left knee, I can go low if I make sure it stays above my foot and pointed the same direction as my foot. But if I take my eye off it and do a 2 legged squat, I likely move the knee outside the optimal column above the foot, and pain hits.

    My trainer helped me firgure that out. So now I'll ask my GP to refer me to a physical therapist, hopefully the one at my gym. We now know what needs working on.
