I’m liking where this is going.

So I recently modified the squat/leg day to try to be nicer to my knees but also up the “work” done for The Defattening Project.

Squatting goes well… tho today I gotta say it was a little disconcerting to hear the grinding of my left knee over the music in my earbuds. Gah. I wonder about bumping up the weight… but I even wonder about going to “model 2” because of being “more work”. But honestly I’m not sure it’s enough work in terms of the way I want to go. So instead I’ve also tossed around the thought about adding in an AMRAP set or like a 8-15+50% set at the end. Not sure yet, as I want this current change to settle in a bit first.

The Stiff-Legs are working well, tho I’m still finding the right weight to use. 185 was good, and I’ll probably go 205 next time. Getting closer. I do have to remember to allow my knees to bend a bit, otherwise I’m getting better about form here. Key is certainly to push the hips back.

But so far, so good. Just going to continue to refine these changes, see where they take me.

Random aside. I hear Paul Carter is working on a new eBook on mass building. Maybe it’ll be out when I’m done with The Defattening Project and I can jump on it.
