Entry #313

ME lower~body

Was extremely careful coming in. Had an extensive warm~up with the exercise bike.

Felt a small pain in left leg joint going down on third set of squat. I repeated the same weight for another and the problem remained. I took no chances; reracked the bar from there. Still, it was much better than last time. Should have no problems next week at this rate, and with the extra DE training days.

Instead switched over to heavy lunges with 105's for dumbbells, and had no problems. Made gains on this.


  1. Sounds like you need a special squat cage.

  2. Do you use any type of gloves or grips for the Lunges so that you can hold the dumbbells still as you're walking?

  3. I use the leftover tendons as wraps.

  4. Actually, no. I used to but stopped. I prefer to train my grip rather than give it a crutch.
