    Let us know how you like them. I gotta find something new.

    I saw them on Iain vallier's Instagram.

    He has osgood-schlatters which is a very painful knee issue dealing with the patellar tendon and he was saying good things.

    He is also a human fork lift who moves huge amounts of weight and doesn't promote things typically.

    Going to order them today and use them next leg day I have em.

    Good pull session today.

    Gonna try to work the weights back up with the form adjustments I made a few weeks back now that they're hammered into my brain.

    Added more variety to training but kept the volume overall the same. These are all movements I feel really well and this session covers the entire back. My second pull session will be more focused on rows and thickness.

    One arm pulldow with handle attachment - 135*12/ 10 RP 90*11/7/6

    Smith row - 315*10 MR 275*22

    Standing Cable Pullovers - 60*12, 40*11

    Deadlift - 405*6

    Incline db row - 55*15/ 12/ 10

    Close grip Ez curl - 70*20/15

    Dual cable curl - 60*12/ 10/ 8

    Abs

    Legs.

    Sleeves won't be here till Thursday so I used my regular knee sleeves today. A LOT of tiger balm and a bunch of leg curls to start to warm up the knees.

    Didn't take much to put me in the hole today. Mostly one working set on each exercise with a cluster set and rest pause thrown in on hacks and seated leg curls. Kept the tempo slow and cautious. Have some knee pain already but, it's manageable.

    Hack with reverse band - 6pps*9, cluster set 3pps 4 sets of 5, last set to failure

    Leg press feet close and mid - 4pps*15 (these last four were grinders with the four count eccentrics)

    Dead stop stiff leg dead bar mid shin - 315*12

    Seated leg curl - 90*20 Rest Pause 90*15/8/3

    Calf Raise ó180*15/ 13/ 11

    Hypers glute focus - 15/ 11/ 10

    That's it. Rest up. See how we're feeling and decide the plan going forward.

    Monte did you already tried TB-500 and BPC-157? I also got some chronic patella tendonitis going on for almost a year. After a lot a fysio treatments, mobility work, quality knee sleeves, tb500 & bpc, proper warmups itís going very well... but i have to be very smart with exercise selection and loading. One small mistake during a workout can cause severe knee pain for weeks.

    I did about six months ago and didn't have any improvements. It worked well for my shoulder but didn't do much for the knee.

    I might be at the point I have to try some bigger doses though. Was just hopeful that the time off would have done enough.

    You remember when I had bad tendinitis in both knees. I feel like knee sleeves and Deca did the job for me. I also got away from certain movements for awhile and that helped. I think going through prep last time with having to lower the weights and my weight drop helped as well. This past offseason has been awesome since I had zero knee issues. The tendons can lag behind with leg growth and thatís when the tendinitis sets in. Slowing down the negatives and not bouncing out of the whole I think helped me as well. I know you donít do that but I see many others that do!

    Yeah I've been wearing the sleeves for a long time. Deca hasn't helped.

    I am tempted to start putting my wedges back into my metcons to elevate my heel a bit again. It's counterintuitive but, I don't remember having the issue when I was using them.

    The wedge will force the knee to travel ahead of the line of movement more which should load the quad more which will put more load on the ball of the foot which should put more sheering force on the knee but I just don't recall having that issue.

    I did get my sleeves today. They're longer then my old ones and pretty snug in a 2x. Well loosen up some though I'm sure.

    Push.

    Close grip machine press - 360*9 270*10
    Incline db - 110*10 90*11
    Cuff lateral - 28*15/ 13/ 11/ 10
    Reverse pec deck - 50kg*15/ 14/ 12/ 10
    Seated cable press - RP 200*11/ 6/ 4
    Tricep press down - 5 sets to failure @ 60

    Little short on time today so I didn't do any pressing for delts and cut the tricep work short. Will adjust this next rotation.

    Will slowly increase the intensity techniques over the next few weeks instead of throwing them all in at the beginning because strength increases will be enough to start putting some size back on. Planning this training block to last a little longer then usual so it'll be more gradual.

    Pull day, lots of rows.

    Hammer Row - 4pps*11, 3*13, CS (4*5 5 Deep breaths between sets) 3*17
    Preacher Curl - 90*13/11/10/9
    Cybex Row - 210*11, 190*13, CS 130*18
    Cross body cable row - 50*13/ 11
    Db curls - 35*12/ 11/ 11/ 9
    Deads - 405*8(+2)
    Dual cable curls - 50*11/ 9/ 8

    Deads felt better. I guess if you actually do them, they get better lol. Working up to the top of the rep range here then I'll increase the weight. Not going to increase any volume here since the plan is to do them every pull day which is every 5/6th day. I'll be pulling rdl's as well so no need to get to crazy.

    Nice Deads !! Good poundage/reps. Sounds like your getting strong . Deads are the one exercise I have to have perfect form. (They scare me from past, tiny errors and boom , I am hurtin for certain. Luckily Iíve been strict. Keep up the hard work Monte

    It's getting better. Two more reps then the previous session is a win so, I've still got a lot of improvement here that will come quickly

    Legs

    Tried the new power sleeves out. I like em. They're longer then my old sleeves so they bunch up during sets and I have to pull them back up a bit every second or third set but, the wrap attachment is fantastic. I can get about three wraps with it and it sits right below the knee cap which is where it's needed.

    Order was a bit off today but it was solid and painful. Super slow eccentrics as the plan has been since coming back.

    Leg press - 6pps*20 CS 4PPS*20
    Hatfield squat - 315*15, 315*12
    Seated leg press - 210*18, CS 210*21
    Lying leg curl - 80kg*13, 80*10
    GHR - 5 sets to failure
