My knees are better but I'm gonna take a week without squats which I should have done 3 weeks ago... well
you live you learn.   ;)
My interval for intense squatting seem to be about 5 weeks, then I should deload or take a week off.
My legs isn't a lagging body part so I don't know why I push them so hard?
I love squatting in some twisted way... There's something I like about getting under the bar
and not knowing if I'll make my 8 reps or whatever.

Done stupid things like icing my knees for the 2 last weeks of a tweaked 5x5 and got away with it. :o (I did 5x5-5x8 monday and 5x3 friday)

Wow!  Are The eggs raw or boiled?.  Anyway.  Two question:  -Is there no problem of acid stomach with that intake of eggs? -Is this in the day of training or everyday?

I eat three versions: Boiled, semi-boiled(30 sec-1 min) and raw.
In average I eat at least 3 eggs a day. but WO days 7-12. I  supplement with HLC tabs and sometimes L-glutamine.
What causes me stomach probs is the way I used to eat..... like a hungry dog, almost no chewing.

Smith machine Upside down leg press
1x30 79,3 lbs, 2x30 68,3 lbs

Wide grip pullup (all reps on straight bar @ BW)
1x13
1x10 (less than 0,5 cm from eleven)
1x10 (less than 0,5 cm from eleven.. again..)
1x4 eccentric on cambered bar


DB BP Drop sets
3x82.6 lbs +5x77 lbs
3x82.6 lbs +4x77 lbs +2x71.6 lbs
4x82.6 lbs +3x77 lbs +4x66 lbs

Std press 91.5 lbs

2x9 1x8

Reeves machine calfs first set: 200,6 lbs, second and third: 222,6 lbs

Going to see a PT regarding the knees. They're getting better but
it's slow... my guess it's connective tissue that's been over used...or abused. Better safe than sorry!   ;)
Gaining is pretty good otherwise. I'm disappointed about
making not eleven reps on the second and third set of pullups...
I want it soooo baaad.
