Default 7/2/12

7/1: Walk 32 min 2 3.6-3.8 mph, 5% incline

Today:

100F in the garage and working overnight tonight. I hit up LA Fitness for a workout. The gun show was out in full force.

Squat - R knee started hurting during warmup - FAIL. I can air squat fine, but I'm getting pain at the patellar insertion with a bar on my back.

Plate DL:

135 X 15
225 X8
315 X 3
365 X 2 @ RPE 8
370 X 2 @ RPE 8
375 X 2 @ RPE 8
380 X 2 @ RPE 8.5
385 X 2 @ RPE 9
390 X 2 @ RPE 9

Goblet squats:

20 X 10
40 X 10
60 X 10
80 X 10
100 X 10
120 X 8

Knees felt fine with these. My problem is probably mechanical; I've been low bar squatting with a fair amount of forward lean. My knees are probably coming too far forward. I'll do these for a while and try to go back to some front squats/high bar squats with an upright torso, sitting back into the squat.

Single leg knee ext: 45, 60, 75 x 12-15

Back extensions: BW X 15, 25 X 15, 45 X 15

Leg raises 3 X 15
