Thnx boss. FWIW it’s all relative and individual. Reps and volume work well for some while others do best relatively lower rep and lower volume

Physio went well, she’s fairly certain the knee pain is Patella-femoral irritation. Cause likey to be kneeling alot at work and driving lots in a van with my right knee always stuck at a 90 degree angle.
I’ve got my knee cap taped up:

This is to confirm her diagnosis, if the knee doesn’t hurt driving tomorrow, it is certain.

She wants me to stop doing any leg training for 3 weeks, then introduce exercises back one at at time to see if any of them are agrevating it, I suppose like an elimination diet.

Going to stop my current programme, and just fuck about on upper body stuff. I’m not going to think about a programme, I’ll keep a log still and just try to beat the log book on a few compounds and wing the rest on the day.
Will also stop any pressing with a bar to give shoulder joints a bit of a break.
Quite looking forward to this.

So, I’ve been thinking about a programme:

D1- vertical push compounds, horizontal push isolation/pump.

D2- vertical pull compounds, horizontal pull isolation/pump

D3- abs, mobility conditioning

D4- horizontal push compound, vertical push isolation/pump

D5- horizontal pull compound, vertical pull isolation/pump

D6- rest or repeat D3.

Had a chat with one of the personal trainers who is also a physio. He thinks the knee pain is due to abductor weakness and my leg position whilst driving. (the physio last night said this could be a contributing factor.) he suggested getting the tape off, which I did, and said I should not stop training legs.
I’ve decided to listen to him as this is more what I wanted to hear.
I am going to book a session in with him to show me abductor strengthening exercises, and check my form on squats, Legpress etc, to make sure I’m not worsening the knee issue.
Very happy, but enjoyed today’s session so much I’ll probably stick with push pull legs for a while.

This way leg traing frequency will be 2 out of 6 not 6. Might make a difference.

Surprised with the pull ups, haven’t done them in a while, after 1st set of 5 with added weight thought I wouldn’t get 5 on next, but managed 5x5! Kept rest to 90 secs.

Really like the double cable seated rows, can rotate wrist and really feel lats contracting.

Had a session with the new Physio, very impressed. Did some diagnostics then he watched my squatting. He wants be to switch to low bar squat to a box for 4-6 weeks and has given me some mobility exercises to do. He thinks the knee issues is a combination of my driving alot and being overly quad dominant. (this surprised me as I thought I was more hip and Glute dominant. He also thinks I’m more suited to low bar with my body mechanics.)Ended with some percussion massage gun torture.
