Aye but due to shoulder I can't press, should have done a row variant like a pendlay in hindsight though.

Knot is still there today

Extensions? Yeah I don't condone them. These were super super light despite being apparently 84kg. I was waiting for gf to finish deads before getting the bar so was just playing around tbh

Don't do them, they end knees

Do they actually 'end knees' themselves or do people just not train hamstrings as much so end up with knee pain from imbalance?

I tore my meniscus on it, so I'm somewhat biased

However having done a fair bit of reading - it loads your VMO, medial meniscus etc (i.e. everything on the inside quad/ knee area) and doesn't load much else meaning you snap your stuff up as at the best of times your VMO plays second fiddle to your vastus lateralis/ rectus femoralis in just about any movement... largely as they're a lot bigger. It also doesn't load your hamstrings and no normal movement loads one side without the other.

Hamstring curls are good though as they don't attach onto the patella

Hamstring curler here, have a good few sets before I squat to loosen them and warm them up.

Eurgh. Ffs. Lost it mentally again + I thought knot had gone from back but not so. I was subconsciously hip shooting cause it wasn't at all comfy. In hindsight should have stopped at 140 and just said nah.
Anyways if this is what I think it is and a muscle pull... It's infuriating as that leaves me a full blown Mr Glass. Again. Ffs ffs ffs.

Might have over done volume per time
Feel sick and shaky lol

Leg press
Up to 280kg 1 x 15
1 x 14.5
Walking was interesting for 5 mins after this

T bars
Up to 95kg 1 x 3 technically a PB but it was all over the place. I think I'm suffering the effects of failing the DL
80kg 3 x 7

Then gym emptied. I was the only person in it. So did sort of superseting on movements. Was walking from one machine to the next. Having a minute the going back to the first machine.

Lat pulldown
Up to level 14 1 x 7
1 x 8
1 x 8-10 I forget/ lost count

Hamstring curls
20kg 1 x 5
30kg 3 x 15
My walk is shaky

Fly's cable
Level 4 1 x 5
Level 5 4 x 8
Pump of peace

Facepulls
Up to level 8 2 x 10

Tricep pushdowns
Up to level 10 2 x 10

Preacher machine
15kg 2 x 8

1hour 10 session. Volume 210ish reps lol.

Shoulder feeling better

Figured out why I rep deads so well yet suck pulling ones. I don't engage legs/glutes at the bottom on first rep. I get an inch off the floor then engage usually as I'm wondering why it won't come up. Second rep onwards legs engage off bottom and I can rep it out well.

Might be operating tomorrow. The way I feel atm means that it could be interesting :lol:
