    Poor session tonight. Left thigh and knee feeling really awkward and sore, which stopped me from squatting. Was also really hungry too, so didn't stay long.

    Press:

    60 x 8
    65 x 1
    70 x 1

    Surprised I got 8 with 60, but after that it just felt really heavy.

    Chins:

    bodyweight x 5/5/5

    Then some stretching and home.

    Forgettable session tonight.

    Squats:

    up to 140 x 1

    Knee still hurting, but obviously not as bad as Monday.

    Push press:

    85 x 3

    Meh, wasn't feeling strong.

    Barbell rows:

    80 x 8/8/8

    First two sets easy, last set hard.

    Then home.

    Changed my routine many times since the beginning of this thread. Not doing a routine at the moment, and probably never will do one again to be honest.

    Nothing to complain about tonight.

    Squats:

    160 x 1
    130 x 6

    Knee feeling a lot better, but still not 100%.

    Bench:

    85 x 5

    Not too hard. Not lost as much strength as I thought I would, which is encouraging. Maybe could have got another rep, or 90 x 5, but didn't have a spot so didn't push it.

    Deadlifts:

    211 x 1

    I 1kg PR. Very hard.

    Chins:

    Bodyweight x 7/5/6

    Some foam rolling and home.

    Foam rolled my calf a bit, which seems to have helped a little.

    You could also get a knee support to wear to speed up recovery? They are cheap too(not that cheap lol)!

    I wear double ply knee sleeves from Strengthshop. Doesn't help that much to be honest.

    Nahh not knee sleeves in particular, there's much better knee supports particularly for serious knee injuries that you can get! (A lot of people used to get them when I did judo).

    Average session this afternoon.

    Squats:

    120 x 8/8

    Quite tough to be honest, wasn't feeling the squats this afternoon.

    Bench:

    80 x 8/6/6

    Maybe had an extra rep on the last two sets but not spotter so didn't want to risk it.

    Barbell rows:

    80 x 8/8/8

    First set was the hardest, rest weren't too bad.

    Then home.

    Routines are mainly something that new lifters tend to think about. People with a bit more experience tend to know what they need to do and do it.

    Pause squats:

    120 x 5/5

    Legs and ass hurting a lot from Saturday for some reason, but these weren't too bad.

    Press:

    55 x 10/10/7

    On last set triceps just gave out.

    Chins:

    bodyweight x 7/5/5

    Arms quite tired from pressing.

    Some foam rolling then home.
