Welp I hit a huge bump on this road. Severely injured my left knee either in the gym or at work. Woke up barely able to walk on it. Going up and down stairs and in and out of the ambulance at work is agony. I really do think it is the heavy leg presses. This is how I hurt the same leg last time (1300 lb leg presses). I am done doing leg press forever now. Going to stay off of it a week, ice it, and see how it feels. Will work on upper body this week I guess. Very unhappy with this as I was making huge progress on a weekly basis on my deadlifts.

Damn man, sorry to hear that. Rest up, ice and see how you go. Hoping you get a speedy recovery MF.

Sorry to hear about the knee - not a bad idea to stay away from those leg presses, and when you're back to squatting, always go deep, it tends to be easier on the knees for most people if you always make sure to dunk it below parallel. Hope you feel better soon!

I also agree with regards to the deep squatting, easier on the knees than stopping at parallel or just before.

After taking 9 days off from the gym I am going to attempt to make it through a workout tomorrow. Probably just rack deadlifts and pressing. I will have to slowly ease squats back in. I am so stressed out and devastated by this happening I nearly want to give up.

Keep through it man. When I messed up my ankle I wanted to drop it completely, but that would be the worst decision you can make. The progress will come and you'll come back stronger than ever.

I was pretty sure I commented, obviously didn't hit the 'Submit' button or something which is quite possible lol. 9-10 days off you shouldn't lose much (if any) strength, it's probable that you can just pick things up right where you left off. Also likely that the layoff did you good as I know from reading this log how hard you can push yourself.

Either way enjoy getting back into the gym, stay positive and never give up. We all encounter injuries at some point in one form or another, it's how we deal with them and move on that matters.

Going well. Nailed 460 deadlift with a 3 sec lockout tonight. That is the strongest I have felt moving that much weight so far. Slowly building squats back up at the moment. Got 310 tonight. On the road back to 365+.
