This was not the plan.

Squats were heavy. The 245 is NOT heavy for me, yet it felt like a ton. Then the AMRAP wasn’t many. Why? I don’t know… just one of those days? Descents were slow, ascents kept feeling like they were falling forward and I was always up on my toes instead of over the middle of my foot. The groove just felt off in every way.

Then I hit the leg press. I started to put pressure on to unrack the weight, and my left knee said “OH HELL NO”, in the bad way, like no good would come of this. I tried a couple more times of relaxing, adding pressure, and each time the knee made it clear this would only end badly. Yeah, that concerns me… it could just be the mode of the day, and still recouping from the CSAT weekend.

I’m not going to sweat things too much at this point, but it is starting to concern me.

So I just did what I could. Leg extensions and curls didn’t put any pressure or pain on my knee, so off I went. No idea what weight to use, so I pyramided up, stayed for a bit, then drop set on the last set.

Not 100% sure what to make of today just yet, but I’m happy to find ways to work around things instead of just throwing in the towel.
