I received a number of good tips on the Fitness & GPP forum regarding the tendonitis. Cut out squats for prehab/rehab work. Kept the DL

5/7
Press
45x5x2
60x4
75x2
85x1
95x5x3 (work set, 3:30 rest)

DL
45x5
95x3
135x2
185x1
205x5 (work set)


5/9
BP
45x5x2
70x5
95x3
125x1x2
145x5x3 (work set, 3:30 rest)

Instead of doing chins for assistance, I went rock climbing after doing BP


5/11
Press
45x6
60x5
75x2
90x1
100x5x3 (work set, 4:00 rest)

Gym closed, didn't get a chance to do DL. This actually worked out. I find that I like doing BP and DL on the same day vs BP and Chins, picking up DL where I left off on the next day.

The rehab on the knees has been going really well. Been doing a lot of eccentrics, TKEs, icing and massage. Whacked the knees with a bit of ibuprofen, things are feeling peachy. Reintroduced the squat for today

Favored my squat on my right leg a bit (the un-injured one). Will focus on muscle balance and single leg work for my left leg.
A bit of inflammation in my left patellar tendon pwo, but nothing a little ice and fish oil couldn't take care of.

Eating has been solid, lot's of protein and fat, just trying to pack in the calories.
Sleeping has been on and off, looking forward to getting back into a pattern over the next few days.
