    I have a slightly different perspective about this.
    If you make strength training a life long persuit, whether it takes 1 month or 2 months, it's fairly insignificant with respect to the rest of your life.

    Injuries suck, they can slow your progress down more significantly than being overly conservative.

    Once you hit intermediate level, gains come much slower anyway.
    Avoiding injuries is wise.

    I like your perspective. I don’t think you can argue against any of your points.
    Especially long term, gains are slow and you should just get used to it.

    Busy day. Literally ran out of time to do DL-s.

    The end of LP is seriously taxing on your body.

    Rip says Texas method is taxing, but as far as I am concerned Texas method is a bloody stroll in the park compared to the last 4 to 8 weeks of Novice LP if you're truly pushing yourself at every workout.
    Thanks, I like the idea. Now that I recall - 2 years ago I was doing Texas Method at 120kg (on intensity days) with no problems and kept making progress, while 1 year ago I was doing LP at 120kg and that is when my knee problems started. I might consider it as soon as I hit 100kg.

    No deadlifts because of torn callus from from going crazy with pull-ups last week.

    Gotta get on that NLP for callouses. Started too high. I recommend a deload. 😜
    Nice work getting after it though. Steady progress on the lifts you’re doing.
    Are you feeling solid on the squats or are the old injuries with the knees creeping back in?

    Squat: 3x5 @ 42,5 kg (93 lbs)
    The Press (seated): 3x5 @ 45 kg (99 lbs)
    SLDL: 3x5 @ 60 kg (132 lbs)
    Chin-ups: 3xAMRAP; Result: 10/8/6

    Comments:
    The Press is approaching ‘feels heavy’ weight. This LP I am more prepared and I have micro plates, so I can use 1kg increments (or even smaller) eventually. 2kg increment feels appropriate for The Press after this workout at least.
    I added Chin-ups to my LP. Since the weights are low at the moment for most exercises, getting more stress makes me feel better about my workouts and more disciplined not to increase the weights too fast. I will do bodyweight Chin-ups until I can do 3x10. After that I will switch to Weighted Chin-ups 3x5 LP.

    So far so good, thanks. Whenever I hear a small crack or pop near my knees, I immediately think about whether I messed something up again, but all good.
    I have trained my brain to unconsciously protect my right knee by putting less pressure on it with everyday activities such as walking up the stairs or standing up from a chair. This however has developed un-natural movement patterns in muscles and it is hard to go back to normal.

    I feel pretty confident about my Bench Press going up for a while. The bar moves fairly fast and I don't need long breaks. I'd like to get 3-4 more workouts with 3kg increments, and then maybe 3 workouts with 2kg increments. Then switch to 1kg increments until I finish my LP. I would be happy to get my LP to 100kg. Last time doing LP, my PR was 3x5@102,5kg, but then my body-weight was 11kg more.
