Thanks ana! It really sucks I can tell you that. Its been over 3 months now and i still cant squat properly
im really sorry to hear about ur knee philo. sucks so bad when u want to lift, and something like that prevents u from it. i hope the doctor finds out whats wrong and is able to do something about it. anyways, i would stay away from anything that aggrevates the knee if i were u, could make things worse to put pressure on it.
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
Decided to stop using wendler for this year. My knee is bothering me too much! I'm going to give it some extra rest untill next year. Hopefully I will be better by than.
I'm gonna take this time to devote myself in getting some new bench pr's. I'm looking for some bench specialization routines. If anyone knows a good let me know. It really sucks but its better for my health I want to squat for at least 30 more years so better safe than sorry.
oh shit i misread, yea its better to take a break than seriously injuring something and being crippled for the rest of your life.
as far as strength goes, a lot of people had good success with a 5/3/1 routine, or a the russian power program. ben (freako) just posted recently a good cycle in the trainings section. i forgot the name but it looked very interesting.
