day sixteen of strong lifts 5x5

sqats
0kg
Press
30kg
4-5-5-4-3
Deadlift
75kg

my knee felt very ropey on my warm up squat set so I've decided to leave my ego at the door and have a week off from them and go see the doctor and find out whats up, id rather have a week off and be behind on progress than blow my knee and have six months off on everything.
tried seated press and managed a little better than last time so ill be back to standard presses next time. and on a slightly better note i absolutely nailed my reads, even managed a cheeky extra rep to celebrate :).

Good luck with the knee dude, a friend of mine royally buggered his knee whilst training in martial arts and won't squat now.. They're so important so laying off for a week is definitely a good decision mate! Hope you're having a good week so far ed :)

Pretty shit to be honest matey, had a loss in the family but I'm keeping my chin up and keeping up with work college and training as normal.
Random question.. But how are you finding the 6 meals a day thing man?

Can you get a video up of the squats?

Just thinking with your knee, it could be down to something like a technique/biomechanics issue. A video shot from the side would definately help so I can have a look how your knees are tracking during the descent as well as what happens to them when you come back up 'out of the hole'. Thanks MF.

Not lightweight, but not something that's going to crush you lol. How about you pick a weight that you could get a good 7 or 8 reps with?

day 16

sqats
0kg
Press
25kg
Deadlift
80

still no squats yet, deloaded on the press because i think im struggling because ive got in to some bad habits with form so cant progress the way i was doing them. was looking at some of mark rippetoes vids on you tube and tried some tips out today and by god was it easyer, i know i can already press 25kg but it was so much easyer this time and they powered upwards.
deadlifts were still cool although a little challenging, i feel next session may be the first sticking point.

day 19

squats
0
bench
42.5kg
barbell row
40kg

hopefully last day of no squats, ive had no problems with my knee all day, struggled towards the end of benching but soldiered on and stripped the rows back a bit because my form was becoming extremely sloppy so i took my time and concentrated more on what i was doing and not just banging the reps out.
