The weekend was amazing but physically and emotionally draining! I still feel a bit tired even now but I'm eager to get back under the bar!
I'm gonna deload my current weights on 5x5 and take another crack at it!
PBs on bench and squat will have to wait for now.
SQUATS
80Kg x 5 reps
80Kg x 5 reps
80Kg x 5 reps

DEADLIFTS
60Kg x 5 reps
100Kg x 3 reps
120Kg x 5 reps. Really tough maybe I should have gone lighter..

OVERHEAD PRESS
40Kg x 5 reps
40Kg x 5 reps
40Kg x 5 reps
40Kg x 5 reps
40Kg x 5 reps + 30 second hold.

What was your last 5 rep max on deadlifts?

If you were able to pull out 5 reps on it but it was tough, then you picked a good weight. Go up 5 kg next time and see what happens.

Another fucking set back!! I've buggered my knee somehow, either at work or during training I have no idea, it just became uncomfortable to walk on yesterday. Its coming and going at the moment and I've got a tube bandage on it for support, probably best I don't squat today as a precaution, but I will be deadlifting. I'm gonna play around with different weights and rep ranges and just see what happens, back on 5x5 when my knees sorted ;)

Deadlifts
20Kg x 10 reps
60Kg x 8 reps
90Kg x 6 reps
110Kg x 5 reps
140Kg x 2 reps (very disappointing..I would use the knee as an excuse but I'm not an asshole ahha)
60Kg (just for the pump 8) ) x 20 reps, great fun

Overhead press
20Kg x 10 reps
30Kg x 10 reps
40Kg x 8 reps
45Kg x 8 reps
50Kg x 6 reps + 30 second hold

Still off the squats and getting a little pissed off.. Still gonna play around with different rep ranges.

Bench Press
20Kg x 12 reps
50Kg x 10 reps
60Kg x 10 reps
70Kg x 6 reps
70Kg x 6 reps
50Kg x 15 reps! this was fun

Chin ups
X 8 reps
X 6 reps
X 6 reps

Some arm stuff.

I'm sick of my knee playing up tbh but its best to keep off of it I suppose.

Injuries are aggravating for sure! Don't rush it though or you may set yourself back further. Maybe when the pain is light enough start doing therapy with very light weight and inch up every few days. Hope you get it worked out soon! Killer log here!

Hey Ross,

Up until a couple of years ago i'd a really bad knee injury, i couldn't leg press, squat or even do leg extension's (not even light weights), physio did nothing to help it neither. Believe it or not, what cured it (literally), was performing static holds on leg extension's and leg curl's, holding the weight in the contracted position (the strongest position). Once my knee started to feel a bit better, i started using static holds on the Leg Press, holding the weight in the position of maximum motor arm, after that it was partial rep squats, and before i knew it, i was back to using full range of motion again:) Every now and then i still use static holds.

Static holds eliminate friction (a by product of movement), secondly, you not moving through position's of disadvantaged leverage, these are two of the main factors that play a big part in the wear and tear of joints and connective tissues.

Best, and good luck
Rob

Cheers for the insight and advice lads :)
Its kind of a soreness on the right side of my left knee (hard to explain sorry) but yeah I think I'll lay off it for a little while longer and try static holds and light weight therapy.
Wish me luck :p
