Everyone, thanks for the help/tips, much appreciated.
I performed the A workout (listed below) and kept the DLs, my knee didn't flair up at all, so +1 for that (I love my DLs
). I'll start including slow eccentric squats and eventually move to bw squats. Overhead squats with a broomstick also sounds solid. I'll experiment with single leg work and see how my body reacts.
Unfortunately box jumps and hill sprints aren't on the map yet, running and jumping seems to flair up the left knee.
That being said, I'm sticking to SS program w/ little change:
(eventually using ring dips as assistance)
I'd like to eventually incorporate an assistance exercise in the "A" workout, however I'm unsure due to the nature of heavy DLs. If assistance work should be incorporated, I'm thinking push press.
Once I'm confident my tendon is ready for squatting, I'll toss it in to the program and continue business as usual.
Again, any tips or critiques are more than welcome.
Thanks again, guys.
