No. That is why this is so odd. It's only pain in my left knee. At 225, there was no pain, so I'll start moving back up slowly and see how it feels.

I've hit some spells of mild tendinitis at times, and the occasional minor knee strain. I think you're doing good by backing off for a while. Hit a couple lower sessions until it feels solid.

Friday, 4-27-12
Deadlift 245, 335, 365(0). Yes, zero.
Front Squat 3x6, 175. 20 pounds more than last week.
Calf Raise 90(15), 135(15), 170(10)
Cble Crunch 20(15), 21(12), 21(8).

Deadlifts were great--great form and control--right until the last set. Between my 335 set and my 365, I got distracted by a guy who kept asking me questions. He seemed well intentioned, so I answered him as best I could and referred him to MAB (of course). I ended up waiting too long--it was more than 5 minutes between those sets. By the time I got back to the weight, I was almost "cold" and 365 felt like it was welded to the floor. This delay was my fault. Next week, I will not let anyone distract me and I'll destroy that weight. I'm still pissed about it.

Front squats felt good. I noticed a touch of left knee pain on one rep, only I noticed that my left foot wasn't lined up with my left knee--AHA!!--that may have been the cause of my knee pain on squats.

I can't believe I actually forgot to do OHP. Probably still ticked about the missed DL.

Yeah you will crush deadlifts next time.

Also that sounds like the problem with knee pain but if it continues you might look into buying a cheap pair of knee sleeves. I know they help a lot of people out and I really like my pair. It seems though that you and BtB found the problem, hope you get it all sorted out.

Monday, 4-30-12
Squat 245 (7,7,6). Felt good. Still feeling out the knee.
Calf Raise 3x8-10. 270, 280, 290(6)
Cleans 5x3 160.
W.Situps 70(15), 70(15)

Overall felt good. My knee felt fine during squats. Will try out 255 next week.

Tuesday, 5-1-12
Bench 250 (6,5,4). 2 less than last week.
Db Row 3x10-15. 80 (12,11,11). 1 more than last week.
Dips BW+80 (6,5,4). First attempt.
Chinups BW+20 (7,6,5). 1 more than last week.

As usual bench is stagnant. It's been 4 weeks at the same weight w/o an appreciable increase in reps. I'll give it another week or so and see what happens. If I don't get any movement, I may move down a bit and try moving back up slowly. Maybe even microload it after 240 or so.

Hoping you hit a breakout on that bench. Back in the day when I hit bench stalls I would give myself a play day to do whatever chest workout I wanted, as long as it was higher-ish volume.
