Had to back off the squats, overriding inflammation issues in the patellar tendon - this is definitely linked to systemic issues as well as the tendonosis

I've upped the fish oil intake to 10g (might go up to 15 or 20g) depending on the results. The only issue is I'm on the road for the next two weeks and will have to take capsules, which will be insanely expensive as compared to liquid. Additionally I'm taking a fish oil with a ratio heavy of DHA, my understanding is EPA is more anti-inflammatory, need to pick up an EPA ratio heavy fish oil.

Thinking about doing the ibuprofen carpet bomb followed by rehab, but I'm iffy on NSAIDs. The last time I attempted a carpet bomb I ended up in the hospital w/ peptic ulcers, was dumb about it though, drank alcohol and caffeine the day after ending the carpet bomb and took lots of fish oil, my body was not happy.

In any case

Slight inflammation in left knee after DLs today. Need to get better with my stretching, foam rolling and icing. Efforts in that area have been bad in the past few days.

Sleep has been iffy. I've been fighting off a cold for the past few days. I finally felt strong enough to attempt some lifting, possibly a bad idea, but meh - I needed some activity.

Definitely not at my strongest. Looking forward to eating a lot of home made food and resting after being on the road this past week, and having to leave again on Monday for another one week stint.

I've been on the road for the majority of the past two weeks, sleep has been on and off, as has diet - but doing my damndest to stay on track.

Dropped the weight on the BP because A) The last BP day was almost a fail day and B) I got sick between that workout (5/19) and this one - figured better safe than sorry.

Wasn't able to lift until 6/8. Over the weekend of 6/5 and 6/6 - went hiking, rock climbing and kayaking, so I was able to stay reasonably active.

Weighed myself when I got back, I was only at 180.8, but lost BF. Still, need to focus on packing in the calories, need to start drinking Olive Oil on the road...getting some grassfed jerky sans allergens


6/8
Knee rehab has been going well. Tossed squats back in starting today. Also dropped weight on presses due to failing on my last 3 on 5/29

Warmed up and performed hip/joint mobility. Focused on warming up knees.

I've tossed ZMAs back into my routine, already feeling pretty good after just 3 days. Still taking Probiotic, 5000 iu Vitamin D and sticking to ~4-9 g of fish oil per day.

On the road for the next two weeks. My simple goals are 1) maintain workout schedule and 2) EAT EVERYTHING I CAN GET MY HANDS ON, losing weight on the road has been an issue.

My drive today consisted of two triple-baconators sans cheese, mayo and bread w/ 3 peaches and a bag of carrots.

Just got to the hotel, time to find food again.

I've tried to eat as much as possible in the past week, luck has been against me. Ate a bad steak at TGI Fridays last Thursday, disgusting. Was exposed to allergens (gluten, garlic, dairy) almost every day since Thursday, causing my system to rebel. Other than that, eating has been OK.

Weighed myself PWO today, 186.5 w/ clothes on...that's with clothes on and former food in the gut - probably closer to 183 or so. Good news, I'm in Duluth, GA all week - that means all the sweet potato fries and Elk, Buffalo and Ostrich burgers I can handle (Fuddruckers right next to my hotel). Goal is to eat 3-5 of those per day in addition to whatever allergen free food I can get.

Sleep has been relatively good. Still dosing ~400mg Magnesium throughout the day, between ~2-4 mg of Copper in the AM, ~30-60mg of Zinc in the PM, ~3-8 G of Fish Oil, 5000 iu Vitamin D and Probiotics.
