Decided to mostly repeat workout from 11/11, squats from 11/9
BP: 45#x5, 95x5, 135x4, 175x2, 195x5,5,5
BS: Knees felt good enough to give another go at squatting.
45x5, 135x5, 185x3, 205x2, 220x3, 215x3,4
I'm having issues getting consistency in my form again. These were all over the place, and my issues w/ heavier weight were not muscular but were w/ form. Leaning forward on a lot of my heavier squats, which is what I think is exacerbating my knee issues. Tried to pull back but still can't get something consistent going. Will have to figure out a way to get coaching on these, particularly if they are aggravating my knees. Been using knee wraps, and my knees felt pretty ok after these sets.
DL: 135x5, 185x5, 225x3, 265x2, 300x5
I could have gone heavier. Noticed after this set that the inside of my knees, particularly right side, were sore. Not good. Can't say what this is, but I think my form is generally solid. Last rep of my workset I wasn't tight to my shins, which I think may have contributed, however.
Chins: 6, 7
Overall pretty good, but squats continue to plague me. V. frustrating
