    At some point, you just have to try something. The knee actually hurt a little less after doing these for a change.

    Knee still hurts in full extension, but less so after squatting, so there you go.

    Knee, meh, but gotta do something and it generally feels better after the something unlike the lying about which leaves it stiff as hell.

    Sheese, these felt heavier than the work sets on wednesday, but I supposed that's to be expected.

    Last warmup felt hard, like I should not progress the weight after a week off. Said fuck it and it went up, slowly, anyway.

    The damned knee still hurts like hell to completely straighten, but feels a little better after deadlifts and worse after squatting. So, today I tried a more traditional powerlifting squat stance, heels wider and toes nearly straight ahead. And...the initial sets went fine and did not cause any knee pain. So, it seems the external rotation with toes out while straightening the leg really hits the trouble spot. Anyway, going with this stance for now.

    Too lazy to do these today.
