Was going to lift yesterday (4/22), didn't get a chance. Spent most of the day eating massive quantities of food. ~8 g fish oil, 5000 iu vitamin d, 400 mg of magnesium broken up by 100 mg throughout the day

Decent night's sleep

Woke, had protein shake w/ coconut milk, 2 g of fish oil, 5000 iu of vitamin d and 100 mg of magnesium

Work Out:
Warm-up, hip, ankle, knee mobility
BS

Stretched and currently eating Chicken Nachos as PWO Meal (f'ing delicious). 2 more grams of fishoil and 100 mg of magnesium

There were definite form issues with the squat. Mainly I kept rolling onto the balls of my feet instead of keeping weight on the heels. "Don't be afraid to take small jumps - be afraid to stop improving" kept rolling around in my head....
...Between the recovering tendonitis and form issues, best to start way too light than go heavy and stall early and/or possibly cause more issues. I'll be backing off the weight on the BS and focusing on form.
Pre-habbing, icing and stretching needs to happen several times per day.
