Testing the wonky knee with some light squatting today. 75lb x 5, 95lb x 5. Felt the knee act up a bit on that last set so leaving it at that. Vastus lateralus does not seem to be firing properly on the right, which I think is what is pulling my patella out of whack, so trying to train vastus on its own with bands and such. We shall see.

20kg one-arm KB bench x 3/3 x 5.
Double 16kg KB OHP x 5 x 3.
Good Mornings, 95lb x 5, 115lb x 5 x 2.
Barbell bent-over rows, 117lb x 5 x 3.
L-sit practice.

Vastus work w/ bands. Very light squats, 109lb x 3 x 5. Knee still twingey but not nearly as much as last time. I can tell my squats have gotten much weaker, though, since I have not been training them for the last few months. Slowly but surely rehabbing...

Bench, very low rep day: 109lb x 1 x 2. 114lb (w pause) x 1 x 2. 119lb x 1.
Partial bench negatives @ 5 chain links from chest, 131lb x 1 x 2.
8kg one-arm skullcrushers, 10/10 x 3.
I'll get to posterior chain tonight; running on way too little sleep at the moment...
