Wake up 5am
I have been hampered by a knee injury that sprung up again from years past. Originally, I displaced my meniscus in high school football. Sat out for two weeks and come back like nothing ever happened. Three years later I had some knee agitation and sharp pain in my right knee. MRI showed scar tissue inflammation causing some annoyance with the tendons/ligaments in the area. Decided not to get my knee scoped because the doctor said it was not necessary. Rehabbed myself for a few months and have been going strong ever since, if not even pushing myself harder. Eight years down the road and BOOM!!! I feel the exact same pain I did in college.
I do train hard everyday and have been for some time now. I cannot attribute it to my current workload or style of training. If that were the case the injury would have popped up a long time ago. Going to keep PUSHING until I see the doctor and they come up with a prognosis. Either way, I cannot be stopped. There is always a solution!
Overhead squat with broomstick practice (not sure where the line is yet for what I can and cannot do with regards to my knee agitation; and I can’t sit still and do nothing though, of course I did feel the pain doing just so; just feeling it out and trying to continuing PUSHING without further injuring myself).
- 21 – 15 – 9 of OHS w/ broomstick, toes to bar, Handstand push up practice (did a few first set but moved toward pike push ups for substitute)
- 3 set superset 15-20 reps each: banded tricep press down, barbell curl and skullcrushers
- Jog then walk repeat with the dog
- Nightly Abs (got these done in at work gym) – 200 weighted cruches; 3 x superset of barbell rollouts x 5, toes to bar x 5-8, vaccuum twists x 30
- Hamstring Curls 5 x 20 (little rest)
