10/17 Max effort Lower
Tuesday my knee felt great. After the soft tissue work my swelling was down to as good as it gets.  Wednesday morning I took my dog for a walk and my knee was tender to talk on. It felt like I had a bruise next to my knee cap. The problem is I did no lower body and don’t remember hitting it on anything. Needless to say I tried to keep things simple and put as little pressure as possible on the joint.
Suspended yoke bar good mornings
Worked up to 365x2 – Very good for me from this position.
A1 long strap hypers 9 plates 4x10
A2 side bends 70 4x12
I trained a client then did Serrano slplit squats with a Purdue Barbell lifter. I think this caused my knee to swell more or stay swollen. I felt alright. I have a feeling my Lateral quad is tight and pulling my kneecap over enough to cause some issues.

10/19 Max effort upper
Had a visitor come in and train with me today. We had a good pace and he pushed me to work harder today. I am always grateful for those workouts.
