Just donated again hemoglobin was a little high but was able to donate. It's been a steady climb, 16.3 was my first, I was 17.5 last time and this time 18.3. Keep on donating and hope it stays low enough to donate.

Everything felt good today,
Well I got a question for the pros that may have dealt with a knee issue before.
So the pain on the inside lower portion of my knee which sounds like an MCL or Meniscus issue, is better. Better as far as no consistent pain but I do get pain once in a while with some movement. Noticed yesterday my knee kind of buckled walking but not a lot of pain from it. I have not squated since a week ago Monday when this tweak happened.
The question, today is bench intensity and squat volume. What would your recommendation be as far as leg movements? Squat? Something else? No leg movements? See a doctor?
Like mentioned the pain is pretty much gone except for the odd time, the joint seems weak at times as well.
I’ve suffered from pain and weakness in that same area for years. When doing construction work I used to kneel on my right knee a lot. Also had a back injury on the same side which led to more pain in that area. Also dive bombing high bar squats and running, kick boxing, a history of over use. I’ve read up on it some and sounds like patellar Tendinitis. It flares up for me when squatting or pulling sumo too much. Knee sleeves and joint support helps and managing squat volume. Try some light range of motion exercises and work on strengthening the supporting muscles, hamstrings, calves, etc. I wish I could help more.
Any help is awesome help.... I broke that leg across the knee joint years ago playing football so will always be a bit of an issue but it hasnt been up until last week. I will do some lighter movements for it today and work on other leg muscles as you suggest thanks
Knee sleeves and not letting your knees cave on squats is my best advice.
Use sleeves all the time and yeah this happened because the damn knee came inside on the way up
Not sure how you have your toes but I turn mine out to about 10 o’clock and 2 o’clock. Really helps keep my knees right and get the most of my posterior chain.
Mine are just standing up at home 11 and 1. I will try to do some very light squats and take note. I used to be fairly wide stance (wider than shoulders) never a knee issue. I have been narrower lately and now knee issue. Coincidence? Maybe.
So my Var and more test cyp showed up today...
Had a nose bleed that wouldnt stop on wau to gym. Got it to stop and it didnt stop me.
Bench was taken so did squats first
Squat volume kept it light due to knee
135x6 with 5 second pause in the hole.
Bench still in use so dumbells to warm up
Worked in with the bencher on the bench
Another note for knee pain...It may sound weird, but start doing some calves. The calves support the knees, and even a little bit of training can help alleviate pain / weakness. Dave Tate has a portion of a Q&A about it. I’ve never personally dealt with it, so I can’t say it’s 100%, but if Dave says it I’m inclined to believe it.
The wider the stance, the less pressure on your knees and more on your hams/glutes
5 rep week
Strict OHP intensity
Deadlift volume beltless
Upright rows cable machine rope attachment
Vbar tricep pushdown
Is this Beyond 531?
