poor effort getting to the gym in the last week, but did spend a couple of days smashing some very difficult fence footings through concrete/brick/clay
Tuesday 6th March
bench / can't remember exacts weights but was something like this - 2x10xbar, 10x60, 8x70, 5x100, missed attempt at 130, couple of sets of 4 at 105
dumbell bench - 4x45's (heavy) , 10x32.5
Had 3rd and last visit to physio today about the knee. Recap as follows
1st visit -cartiladge issue and slim chance calf issue, attacks calf with needles
2nd visit - changes mind to hamstring tendinopathy, massages hamstring and back of knee
3rd visit - not sure what it is exactly, reckons most likely hamstring tendinopathy or cartilage but not sure, recommends gradually increasing weights and respecting the knee (common sense), advises against MRI, but if it gets hurt again then can go see him and get referred to MRI straight away.
So he really wasn't sure what it is exactly in the end. Bit of waste of money really. The only step from here is getting another opinion or just continuing my training and if it flares up in future either pour concrete and water over it and command it to HTFU, or go and get a MRI when its inflamed and they can see what it is. At the moment if got MRI physio reckons its not guaranteed they will be able to see it.
Maybe its time for SMOLOV action...
