Thu Oct 15: Ice on knee

Fri Oct 16: Knee felt good enough. Going to work some front squats into my workout to try to balance things out. Didn't have a gauge of where I stand so this doesn't progress to a work set.

FS: 45#x5, 75x5, 115x5, 125x5, 135x5, 145x5, 155x5
Had a knee sleeve on last set, which I think actually hindered me and caused more stress to that knee as a crutch.

Press: 45x5, 65x5, 85x3, 110x2, 120x5x2, 125x4, 125x2
I was supposed to be doing 130 today, but I totally messed up counting the weights. The strength would not have been there anyway - my lunch was awful and I felt like crap all day.

DL: I watched a lot of instructional video on this and it was invaluable; my form was not correct before.
135x5, 185x5, 225x2, 255x5 (PR)
At least workout wasn't a total waste.

Chins: 5-6-6


Later: Ice on knee.

Also of note I ordered some weightlifting shoes Wednesday - hoping they come in before Monday.
