    Cycle Three Week Three - reps/sets

    Deadlift - 70kg 7*3, 120kg 5*3, 145kg 3*3, 162.5kg 2*2, 177.5kg 1*2, 190kg *1
    Deadlift - 155kg 7*2
    Banded Goodmornings - grey band 12*3
    Kroc Rows - 100lbs 8*3
    Pulldowns - 115lbs 10*4

    I used lifters tonight, and they "seem" to put me in a better position. I had fewer instances of knee pain during the set up, and initiation of the pull...though it might have been the Aleve talking. I'm still not in the position I want to start the pull, but I'm a lot closer than I have been in a while.

    Down sets felt like death, but upon examining the video, they moved nicely. Proving once again, your mind is a shameless liar!!!

    Ohhh yeahhhh...

    I've had knee issues squatting, as evidenced by my hip dominance movement. I unload into the posterior chain to get out of my knees. I goodmorning a goodly amount of my max attempts because of that.

    The Deadlift problem is new...and I don't' like it one bit.

    All that said, we'll find a way to work around it. I'm not ready to acquiesce to Rip's latest missive: that at some point in time you've got to give it up, and just fight to maintain.

    I'm not dead yet...

    Cycle Three Week Three - reps/sets

    Paused SSB - 110kg 5*3
    Paused Bench - 82.5kg 3*3
    Cable RDL - #16 12*3
    Chest Supported Revs Fly - 40lbs 12*3
    Dumbbells Press tempo down - 35lbs 10*4
    Leg Ext - 60kg 20*3
    Nordic Hamstring Curl - bw 10*3

    Sets at rep7 for Squats, Bench might have ended up at 8 / 8.5 by the last set.

    Otherwise it was a good session. Best I've felt in ages. Last couple of days have been fairly pain free...almost makes me think something is wrong LOL.

    Cycle Three Week Four - reps/sets

    Squat - 70kg 5*3, 90kg 5*2, 110kg 3*2, 130kg 1*2, 142.5 / 152.5kg *1
    Squat - 110kg 7*2
    Paused Belt Squat - 35kg 10*3
    BSS - 16kg 10*3
    Single Arm Hi Row - #12 10*3
    Palof Holds - 45sec *3
    Leg Ext - 50kg 20*3

    Just an f'n ugly session. Besides the arthritic condition, I also have a bit of a soft tissue issue. The Quad tendon to the outside of the knee, right above the attachment point presents with a sharp pain coming out of the hole under "heavier loads". Stops any momentum dead in it's tracks...and forces me fully into my hips. I think Aleve needs to be added to squat days until I'm done with training for Natls.

    Cycle Three Week Four - reps/sets

    Bench - 50kg 7*3, 60kg 5*3, 70kg 3*3, 77.5kg 2*3, 85kg 2*2, 92.5kg / 97kg *1
    Bench - 77.5kg 7*2
    Spoto - 72.5kg 7*3
    Single Arm Incline - 50lbs 10*3
    LTE - 35kg 12*3
    EZ Bar Curl - 35kg 15*3
    Tri Pulldown - #10 12*3

    Thankfully it was Bench day. I went for a walk yesterday, nothing I thought would be troublesome...I was wrong!!!
    The walk featured going up and down some very small hills. I guess my knee is incapable of handling any deceleration at this time. The damn thing blew up like a balloon.

    It was a struggle getting my mind right for today's session. Fortunately the knee didn't trouble me when employing leg drive.

    97 was more of a struggle than it should have been...but like I said, my mind was all over the place, and not in a good way.

    Down sets were at rpe9, Spoto was rpe8...at least I got the Spoto sets right.

    I saw the photo you posted. I knew someone that had a knee injury, when it was swollen like that the doctor would drain it. Hope it heals soon

    Yeah, I've been there and done that in the past...

    Usually this kind of swelling is post significant injury, but not from just walking down a few gentle slopes during a leisurely stroll in the park.

    Prior to November 2019, I was able to do just about anything I wanted to on this knee. It seemed to start going sideways during Covid / Cancer treatments. Once the gyms re-opened and I resumed training I was Squatting and Pulling with no issues, until I tweaked my right quad in September.

    Since then, this knee has steadily regressed...stabilized...regressed...stabilized... regressed to where I am today.

    I mean, I know I've put some really hard miles on my knee over the years, but for it to go pear shaped so quickly is something I'm not ready for.

    I.Am.Not.Happy!
