    I wound up spraining my ACL. It's feeling better now, but I am hesitant to squat or deadlift heavily. I should be able to give some light lifting workouts a go next week (nothing more than like 185) and if that feels perfectly fine, I think I will give a semi-heavy 5x5 a try the following week. I can run and play soccer now without pain, so I like my chances. I have just been taking my time because its not like I need get back to training for any specific reason right now and its not worth re injuring or totally tearing it.
    I feel ya man, I am just getting back to walking without my brace/crutches after a grade 2 MCL sprain and 2 bone bruises in my left knee which happened on April 26th.

    The orthopedic specialist said she had never seen 2 bone bruises this bad before. It was the worst pain I have ever had when I woke up the next morning, I was sitting on my ass going down stairs, it was just a nightmare. PT twice a week since the 2nd week of May. I coach a baseball team, so it's been tough to do things that I want to show and can't just say.

    However, now I'm at about 80% in my range of motion and there's almost no pain besides soreness and stiffness when I wake up. Knee injuries are definitely a grind.

    I'm just glad I didn't tear my meniscus, as that's what they feared since I couldn't straighten my knee, but the MRI ruled that out.

        It concerns me a little bit, but I don't like volume that much on my big lifts. I think I am gonna go 5-3-1 for my main lift each day then get some volume in on my assistance exercises (probably a 3x10 or 4x8)

            Good program, very good program. I just dont like that you have to choose between squats and deads.

              • - is there a bad time of day to work out?
                i have work and a pretty jammed schedule throughout the day and was planning on working out around midnight about 4 times a week. is that too late?
                It's less than ideal. Basically you will lose a lot of the gains of working out from a weight loss point of view as instead of the boost in your metabolism your body will do its best to counter it while you sleep.

                Also, when you sleep the body eats away at the muscles, so you want to get some Casein protein in to you before going to bed if you are working out just before sleeping. Whey is a quick release, Casein a slow release which helps stop the bodies catabolic processes whilst sleeping, which is just the break down of the muscle. To add size you want to keep it anabolic as much as possible.

                Sleep experts also believe that working out before sleeping is bad for sleep patterns due to the hormones that are released by working out but I don't know a lot about it so other than perhaps pointing you to do some research on it and find out whether it is a major issue for you and what you are doing.

                I'm also posting this assuming that you live by a normal schedule in that midnight is before bed for you, and not after waking up for instance as obviously the midnight thing is only relevant to your own body clock.


                Props to BK on the sig!

                    Once my knee heals, I was thinking of starting it. I'm slightly overweight, but not obese by any means. (5'10 195) .. doable? I am down for working my ass off, but not if it's just impossible. I've heard good things, but I'm not sure yet.

                      It's pretty damn hard and a lot of it is just self motivation. If you're a good self motivator, you'll reap the benefits, but if not its easy to take sets off or not go all out.

                          My routine is taking Whey (fast digestive) before the workout and Casein (slow digestive) after.

                          I've been doing this for only about a month and I like the results so far.

                            everything I have read suggests you need something fast right after working out. Ideally taken with carbs in about a 3:1 ratio. I can probably link you some scientific studies if you wanted to read up on it.

                            I am thinking of hitting up Brighton Beach this weekend btw.....any restaurant rec? Nothing too fancy, don't want to blow more than like 60 including wine.

                              But standing on the course with one in your hand youíre more likely to be thinking simply that it looks like a great iron rather than marvelling at the thousands of hours of R&D. No wonder TaylorMade golf clubs for sale themselves expect this to be their most played iron on Tour ishiner.

                                Yes, if you don't mind, that would be great. I've been doing research on it. From what I've read, Casein is ideal to take right before bed. The issue with me is that, on weekdays, I can only workout after work (7pm-10pm).

                                My favorite restaurant on Brighton is Gina's (between Brighton 4 & 5). It's a relaxing, not expensive place with good variety and quality food.
