Thoughts: Let's get the bad out of the way first. Didn't touch legs after warming up. Something is a bit wrong with the knee. I've fought through it for 2 weeks as it hasn't been that bad, but it was hurting today. I have no idea what's wrong with it. It "hurts" when I go parallel essentially. It has for about 2 weeks now. It's not a real bad pain, it sort of feels as if I've banged it really hard on a door or something but it ONLY hurts when getting low. Very odd. Anyways this is the first day I've had a scheduled leg day that I said F it on. Maybe a little time off on the bad boy will be good. I've nutted it up for 2 weeks and it hasn't got any better working through it so maybe some short time of full rest will do the trick. Not going to have another leg day for about a week so we'll see.
I've never had knee problems so I'm open to thoughts/suggestions on what to do. I can't remember doing anything that was like "yeah that'll be ****ed for a while" either.
Rest of the workout: Solid. Pump was honestly out of this world today. Quite a bit of direct arm volume is going to naturally do that some, but this is the third time I've done this workout and damn. Very today with the arms. Felt like I could have easily done more and maybe should have as this was the third workout of this. seems to be up, but some of that could be adaptations to doing this workout three times (I've added a rep each week to each set). Increased Alpha type feeling all day today. Could be placebo, but definitely feeling more in control as I walk around. Reminds me of when I use Renegade to an extent.
Haven't noticed any increased oilyness or anything like that yet. Weight is slightly up, but not something I'm really using to gauge the product. Also coming off a fairly big weekend carb load so that could be a lot of that.
