    It's becoming a pattern. Every 7-8 months my knees get cranky and I get artificial cartilage injections. Last November the Strength Doctor showed me a video of him pushing 365 on the prowler. I got the most recent injection today so I told him that I had finally caught him. He rejoiced with me. The injections hurt but they allow me to continue squats and deadlifts.

    HLM LIGHT DAY

    Squat: 70 x 5 (P); 130 x 3; 170 x 1; 178 x 5 x 2
    Press: 45 x 5; 65 x 3; 85 x 1; 100 x 1; 107.5 x 1; 75 x 8 x 2
    Prowler: 300 x 4 x 2 I could not do the third trip. I was out of gas and was hurried, having to take my wife to the Doctor.I will do this weight again.
    300 lbs of plates + 75 lbs of prowler = 375 lbs.

    starting strength coach development program
    We have three assistant coaches. We are commiserating on the fact that I was among Sully's first clients and that I've remained the longest. One of the coaches piped up and called me "OG." I asked what that meant, and she said, "Original Gangsta." I like that. I am the Original Gangsta.
