BW: 230
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
Backoff: 165x6
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
Backoff: 245x5
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
