Default Back in business

Today was the first proper session I have had in the gym since 7th December when I bollixed up my knee.

The last month or so has been tough because I love squatting , for those of you that didn’t notice , I was actually having a second run at smolov and I was beginning to get back to where I was in the summer, but at almost 10kgs lighter… I was really hopeful for a 200kg squat at the single lifts at the end of this month,
As things worked out I have no chance of making that meet and am now further back than I was after the break from squats for the last meet.

So what have I learned?
2012 thought me that I need to be squatting 2 or 3 times a week.
It also thought me that I need to be more patient and I need to work on my form rather than chasing numbers on an excel sheet.
So with that said ill most likely be bombarding you guys with a lot more squat , bench , DL and push press vids …
Please feel free to tear my form apart and point me in the right direction!

As soon as I was injured ,I pencilled in today as my comeback day , provided that I didn’t need surgery and thankfully I didn’t so I went in cautiously today to start back at the squats and also to start my new program (more on that in a minute)
It looks like Santa called by the gym during December as the whole place was all moved about , more priority is now given to the weights area and there are a few additional machines… which I don’t really care for , BUT there is now a hyper extension machine which is great cause I have a pretty shitty lower back that gives me a lot of trouble. Something to work with now for sure!
Also there is a decent floor in there now which should help my deadlifting ….as one of the guys said to me .,… its starting to look like a gym now!

So now to my new plan….
Im going back to basics and to what I know works for me.
Ive decided to combine two great minds of weightlifting Bill Starr and Steve Shaw

Im gonna do the 5*5 program for squats and pressing as per the Novice to Intermediate Lifters spreadsheet , drop the backwork from this, and for my back work use the program that Steve posted a while back for Rob Mori ( I think) , I had started to use this program before I injured my knee and liked it so ill restart and go from there,
i would also say that Steve has previously provided me with a deadlift program for my last meet and it got me a PR so ill follow any advise he can throw my way

Anyway, enough of this long post.

Cliff notes
-injured knee in December , no squatting
-knee feeling better today – start squatting
-new program starts today
-bring on 2013

How did you bollox your knee?

I can guess it was squatting, but what exactly about squatting caused it?

piss poor form i reckon.
week prior to injury i did 130kg x 3 , 10 sets
then week later jumped to 150kg - stupid stupid stupid.

I remember the rep that probably caused it , i think my knee tracked inwards and I went forward on my toes , cut the squat short (in order to make all 3)and didnt go properly deep, rather than get pinned I bullied up the bar in the ugliest squat I have ever done. I was too stubborn there, should have dumped the bar or only done 2 reps.
stupid chasing numbers rather than working at getting stronger and thinking of the big picture.
ill get a video on friday and post it up , would be really interested to hear how you think it looks and what i can do to improve it,
what angle is best for analysis?

Sounds like you have a good grasp of what actually happened, which is good. Although I'd say it was probably a cumulative thing, just one rep rarely fucks someone over unless it's REALLY bad!

Head on angle would be good if it's a knee issue. And side on is always helpful too.

good point - i tend to agree here...
i also just switched my footware over from converse to a pair of power perfects II and wondered if the foot angle caused anything here too.
maybe im over thinking it,
ill take one from both angles , and you can take a look see when you have time.

thanks Fazc

Glad you are back at it. Be patient man, you will be above and beyond where you were in no time. Great point btw about chasing numbers on a spreedsheet. I myself have been guilty of that and is something I could us work on.
Looking forward to seeing your new routine. Best of luck in 2013.
