7/18 ME Squat
Low box squat
Houston, we have a problem. On the 275, about halfway down, my left knee felt a little unstable. Came back up with the squat, but definately tweaked something in my knee. Not really painful, just feels very unstable. Been testing it last eve and this morning... I can run... occasionally when I put my weight on it it feels unstable (feels like the outside of the knee). A little testing this morning makes it seem like lateral force (Pushing out) is where the issue lies. Not swolen. No constant pain, just a little when I move it wrong and it feels unstable at the same time. ROM is fine. I *am* a little tight - I feel like I need to stretch a bit thru the hamstrings.
Due to the instability issue, I just dod some quick ab and low back work.
I've noticed a big jump in my abdominal strength. Ace.
Off tonight. I'll spend some time with my stretching book. ME bench Friday shouldn't be an issue. DE squat is Sunday.
I sure do hope this isn't serious. I'm not sure I can take yet another setback... I might have to take up golf or something.
Squats work better than supplements.
"You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei
