Squats 350x4 (needed to be 7)
no accessories, fled the gym in shame.
got all twisty on the last rep and tweaked my back. when my mind gets weak, it stops trusting the bad knee, and tries to make me shift the weight onto my right leg. plus I set up like shit, and I was high, and my ass came up first.
I have to think that much of this is because (a) i have really been shooting my wad on deadlift, so everything else suffers. i expected this. (b) I have to rehab my left leg. between no knee cartilage and a twice-torn calf, I have learned to walk differently, and that has caused several muscles to be sleepy. I need to awaken them and rehab them and make them stronger so I don't get all twisties when I skwatt.
For the deload, and the next cycle, i will be working hard outside the gym to bring the left leg back up, and try to do a little conditioning. I am going to drop my squat training max by 10 lbs instead of increasing 10 lbs on the next cycle. do more reps while I bring the leg up. Keep spending it all on the deadlift until I hit 500.
I haven't lost any lard for awhile. but I walked for 15 minutes yesterday and today. making some changes with the diet that should help.
