One of my good friends was down and out for like 3 days after getting stuck. I'm still holding out and letting others go on ahead of me.

Went and got my left knee xrayed after I've noticed some pain over a long period of time. Would sometimes hurt and sometimes wouldn't. Was told it was "mild joint disease" which I think is arthritis? Going to see a specialist in a couple weeks. Not something I was expecting at 31 tbh.

9. Back squats-

15*45kg=675kg
12*55kg=660kg
10*65kg=650kg

1985kg=4376lbs+1,745,121= 1,749,497

10. Yesterday's workout done this morning, it's still struggle but better than yesterday still running LP while returning to fitness 5*20, 5*30, 5*40, 5*50, 5*60, 5*70, 5*80, 5*5*90 High bar (kg)

+8,800 = 1,758,297

11. 2 x 6 at 275 = 3,300

3,300 + 1,758,297 = 1,761,597

Last two weeks work.

High bar:
8 x 20kg = 160kg
5 x 40kg = 200kg
3 x 60kg = 180kg
1 x 75kg
5 x 75kg
5 x 75kg
5 x 75kg
4 x 75kg = 1500kg

160 + 200 + 180 + 1500 = 2040kg (4498lb)

Front squat:
8 x 20kg = 160kg
4 x 40kg = 160kg
2 x 62.5kg
7 x 62.5kg
4 x 62.5kg = 812.5kg
7 x 55kg = 385kg

160 + 160 + 812.5 + 385 = 1517.5kg (3346lb)

High bar:
8 x 20kg = 160kg
5 x 40kg = 200kg
3 x 60kg = 180kg
4 x 67.5kg
4 x 67.5kg
4 x 67.5kg
4 x 67.5kg = 1080kg

160 + 200 + 180 + 1080 = 1620kg (3572lb)

Front squat:
8 x 20kg = 160kg
4 x 40kg = 160kg
2 x 65kg
6 x 65kg
6 x 65kg
6 x 65kg = 1300kg

160 + 160 + 1300 = 1620kg (3572lb)

4498 + 3346 + 3572 + 3572 = 14988

14988 + 1,840,040 = 1,855,028

Microcycle 8

+ 22,670 = 1,877,698 lbs

This was the first part of my deload cycle, and I still ended up aggravating my old quadratus lumborum injury. About an hour after slow tempo pause squats, and slow tempo pause glute bridges, I felt my QL start to spasm and I knew I was screwed.

I'll do two weeks of a desensitization phase where my weekly volume will be kept very low at maintenance while I rehab my lower back. Hopefully I'll be ready to continue after that.

That's it for the Summer, I think. My running mileage is increasing and I'll be doing plyometric jumping instead of squats.
