    Thanks Jer! It's always nice to surmount an obstacle that stymied me in the past...

    Volume Block Week Four - reps/sets

    Deadlift Single - 70kg 10*3, 120kg 5*2, 140 3*2, 160*2, 180 / 190kg *1
    Deads - 150kg 8*2
    Big Wheel Pulls (eccentric) - 160kg 5*3
    Cable Revs Fly - #3 12*3
    Single Leg Extentions (both legs) - 30kg 30*5
    Step Downs (eccentric) 8*5
    Single Leg Hip Thrust - bw 12*3

    Knee instability issues raised it's ugly head tonight. My inability to find a stable position to pull from kept me from pulling anything more than 190kg, though that moved relatively well.

    I finally found a more stable position on the 2nd down set - had my shins in a more vertical position. This also carried over to the Big Wheel Pulls, which went quite nicely.

    All bitching aside, I had fun tonight. Every rep, every set gets me closer to the next level!

    Oh my yes...

    Two scopes and one ACL reconstruction on my left knee, as well as years of racquet sports and golf, have beat my left knee up. The Powerlifting not so much.

    This last bout of kneebola is a bit of a mystery, as I've not done anything to my knee that would elicit these symptoms.

    Might have something "floating around" in the knee capsule.

    I'm just not of a mind to see another doctor these days...I've had my fill if you catch my drift.

    I hear ya...

    If I could take back one thing in my life, it would be blowing out my knee playing indoor soccer when I was in my 30's. It's never been right since the injury...but I get by.

    Volume Block Week Four - reps/sets

    SSB Paused - 95kg 7*3
    Spoto - 72.5kg 10*3
    Dumbbell RDL - 105lbs 12*3 (straps)
    Dumbbell Bench - 60lbs 12*3 (alternate arm)
    Dumbbell Incline - 50lbs 12*3 (alternate arm)
    Leg Extensions (both) - 40kg 25*6

    Thus endeth another training block. I imagine we'll go right into the next block. I feel good (knee issues not withstanding), and I'm not beat up.

    Had to use straps for the RDLs after I lost the 12th rep of the first set. I must say it made things easier. Not sure how I feel about that though.

    This alternate arm approach to Dumbbell work is interesting in the fact that it allows me to focus on extension to lock out. Should help my Bench immeasurably.
