Everything today done mostly at recovery weight. Still have the nagging knee issue, maybe a bit of an elbow thing popping up now. Thought it better to keep it light today.

Will take a few days off and come back strong next week.

5 min. row: [B][I][U]1193m/74cal[/U][/I][/B] - easing back into some activity tonight with a row at home.

So, last friday I had my [SIZE="1"][COLOR="PaleGreen"]vasectomy[/COLOR][/SIZE] done, so I had to take it easy for a few days to heal from that. Also, I decided to finally do something about the knee issues I have been whining about lately.

I paid a visit to a physiotherapist today, got my bursitis and baker's cyst looked at. Turns out I have a muscle imbalance between my gluteus medius and the VMO muscle. The pain is in my right knee, but the imbalance exists on both sides. Had some IMS (intramuscular stimulus) work done...where acupuncture needles were put into various points in my leg muscles, causing a rapid flex/relax response, it helps break the fascia up and un-stick some of the tight muscles (so I am told). Anyway, it worked well, as I was able to kneel with no pain for the first time in weeks.

After my row, I hit a good 20-minute lower body mobility session. I have been given a few stretches for my calf, ankle, hams, quads and hips to get things rolling there, and a few exercises to help add strength to my glute med and VMO which should help correct the strength imbalances.

Im booked in to CF956 for Saturday, will hit the mobility and a longer row or two in the mean time. I will ease back in, with some lower weights and really work on the weak points in the chain.

After one day, I can already feel things working better!

All this while PR'ing my understanding of Aggregate Supply-Aggregate Demand economic models! Good evening for the Milton tonight!

Re: Milt's Log II
I had a final exam recently and really had a lot to study for, so I couldn’t get to the gym much lately….

Back at it today with some easy lifting.

[B]Oct. 29, 2016[/B]

Back squat:
[B][I][U]185# x 5, 205 x 5
225# x 3, 255 x 3, 275 x 3
295# x 1, 295 x 1, 305 x 1[/U][/I][/B] – 300-plus, not bad!

(power) 155# x 5 – touch and go, jerk on last rep
(power) 165 x 5 – touch and go, jerk on last rep
(squat) 175# x 3 – touch and go, jerk on last rep
[B][I][U]185 x 1, 205 x 1, 225 x 1[/U][/I][/B] – not as difficult as I expected after such a long lay-off.

(power) 115# x 5
(power) 135 x 4
[B][I][U]155# x 1, 175(2 misses), 165 x 1, 175 x 1[/U][/I][/B] – again, not as tough as I was expecting given how long its been since I was last in the gym.

Im not up to my @$$ in alligators anymore, so I will be getting back to it this week!

[B]Nov. 1, 2016[/B]

Power clean + hanging squat clean
[B][I][U]Loads: 155#-155-175-175-175-205-205-205-205-205[/U][/I][/B] – I feel like I could have gone a little bit heavier. Got some good reps in though.

12 power cleans (135#)
20 bar-facing burpees
[B][I][U]Rounds: 5 even, 160 reps[/U][/I][/B] – it was a tough one being so long, but good.

Re: Milt's Log II
Nov. 2, 2016

Front squat 6 x 2
[B][I][U]Loads: 235# 4 sets, 255# 2 sets[/U][/I][/B] - I feel like I need to do more front squats.

5 sets of:
50 ft walking lunge
30s rest
300m sprint on rower
2 min rest
[B][I][U]Total time: 18:56[/U][/I][/B] - was supposed to be with KB's in each hand, but there was a bit of pain that way, so just did them with no weight.

Lateral strength and mobility is a huge weakness I need to address!
