    Did my workout B today. Knee still hurt but was a little better, I'm trying to stretch it everyday.

    Warmup: 1 Mile on the stationary bike.

    Squats:
    135x5x2, 155x5, 185x3 Warm up sets
    205x5x3 working sets

    OverHead Press:
    65x5x2, 95x4 Warm up sets
    105x5x3 working sets

    Barbell Rows:
    105x5x2 Warm up sets
    155x5x3 working sets

    I also played basketball for an hour or so after the workout.

    The plan:

    Increase each workout by 5 pounds every time except for squats which are twice a week so increase those by 5 pounds every other workout. Then adjust over time.

    Yep. I was going to start it about 7 months ago but someone talked me out of it but the more I read the more it makes the most sense - I wish I would have started that long ago. I'm planning on running it for at least 6 months maybe a year depending on how things go.

    Although depending on the results from my knee MRI I might have to change things up making an appointment today sigh

    Nope. Was hoping it would just go away but it's been lingering forever now. It doesn't hurt at all times which has made it real manageable but now that I'm squatting 3x per week and have 2 basketball leagues going it's getting in the way much more. So I'm giving in and going to see what's wrong.

    Did a Workout B yesterday. Bought a knee brace. It was better but not pain free so I am still planning on seeing someone this week. Was a good workout though my last set of squats was a great set which leaves me optimistic I still have a decent amount of room moving up.

    135x5x2, 185x3 warm up sets
    210x5x3 working sets

    Standing OHP:
    65x5x2 warm up sets
    110x5x3 working sets

    Barbell Rows:
    110x5x2 warm up sets
    160x5x3

    Tomorrow have Workout A. Will do squats 215x5x3, Bench Press 175x5x3 and DL's 225x5x1.

    Oh and haven't made a diet post in awhile. Sitting at 190 for about a month as planned. Maintenance is right around 3000-3200 calories so that's what I'm hitting each day with 200g protein minimum. Will do this for a few months then start a slow cut around March.

    The knee is the same unfortunately. I'm actually icing it as I type. I am going to try a few things like icing it daily, massaging it, and using knee straps and also get it looked at when I get time off of work. I may eventually have to stop squatting for awhile but for the time being I am just working through it - sucks because I have such high goals for this program and the biggest part is squats.
