Three things: (1) every time I think I have my schedule dialed in something comes along and screws that up.
(2) I think I want to go back to working up to a heavy triple with high handles and then dropping weight, flipping over to low handles, and getting in some volume. (3) I seem to be a little skittish about using my legs. I’m pulling too much with my back.

Monday 2/5
Aborted box squats again due to pain in knee. Actually, today I felt it from hip to ankle. Different from last week so I’m not sure it’s tendinitis. Maybe this what stage 3 arthritis feels like?
Did RDLs up to 225 and incline press at 185. Finished with some lat pull downs.

I guess I’ll back off from barbell squats, stick with TBDL, RDL, and swings. And light goblet squats. Hopefully that will feel better.
It’s been a pretty good six months, so I guess I should have expected this.

I’m not going to bother posting training sessions from the interlude.

I’m still trying to figure out what I can do and what works best for me at this point. I’m still using trap bar deadlift, bench pressing, incline pressing, chin ups and cable stack for the bulk of my work. Stopped squatting and restarted squatting, and I’m not sure if I’ll continue. Doing cardio but not consistently enough for me.
I need a goal and a plan.
