Notes:
Change of plan. Going to focus on upper body and rehab lower body properly. I notice my right glute and hamstring are both significantly weaker in fact, unlike what i had reported. So going to add in RDLs, single leg back extensions, etc, in addition to SL work like split squats. Will still do squats but not stress progress anymore. BP is going to take focus i think.

Notes:
The Split squats make the right quad feel good. Whatever they're doing, im liking, do them daily. OHP felt stupidly hard and heavy. The backoff week has been abject failure .. i think it's because daily training gains vanish super quickly. It makes me think daily training only works if you can keep doing daily training, which seems to be a bad thing. It's better to take gains from a weekly session which last better long term. I'm def off the daily training bandwagon, it's dumb.

Notes:
Interestingly .. today it wasnt so difficult for the CNS to do the split squats, last time my HR was high just from 20kg ones but today my HR was much more relaxed, come to think of it, the same is true for that 15 rep set on BS, which would normally become cardioish. In between i also tried to do some walking lunges which i liked as well, so will do those regularly too. BW is unknown, battery died on scales.

Interesting thinking about the payoff. For me the absolute payoff of this type of training is the ability to train and play pain free which allows more progress.

That's got to be up there for sure. At the moment i'm only using SL training on the R leg which was my injured / operated / rehabbing one. If i can bring it up to symmetry with the L i'll be happy. When they're equally as strong, i'll prob be a better squatter and DL jumper and SL jumper (i almost only jump off R). But will be interesting to see if it allows me to go past my previous athletic levels b/c i prob had some sort of imbalance even before the injury as well. Now i'm also curious what would happen if i use SL training on my stronger L leg as well, make it even stronger? Maybe.

I want to do a few things actually in addition to SL training, explore the alternative plant LR and SL jumping off L which are both things i've scarcely done, just for balancing out. Some jumping training like bounds (especially SL but DL too) are so much fun compared to normal training it's fun to mix it up. But when i talk about payoff im wondering if  can improve all these from SL training. Maybe, maybe not

Notes:
I added the reverse deadmill drill as a warmup  since yesterday. I do 3 mins highest incline walking on the TM then go to failure on the reverse deadmill, i experimented with incline and i still dont know which is more beneficial 0 incline or max? Wasnt feeling like doing split squats today (the right foot doesnt like being flexed so much) so tried BSS and what do you know, BSS seems to be way harder. I worry about balance tho cos if i stack it with a bar that would be a wreck! Also i experimented with adding an extra warmup set because i was finding 100kg to 110kg is too challenging to be called a warmup. Adding the 95kg made it less challenging but i still am not strong enough to warmup with 110kg .. so need to experiment some more there also.

Notes:
I pushed the agenda today, i kept the initial warmups technically clean but the latter reps of the sets from 107.5kg  onwards were dirty. It's ok i think, it's better to be dirty and get stronger than stay mediocre forever. I'm patient but day 45 and still struggling to use 100kg+ for reps makes no damn sense, maybe what's missing is my old intensity?

Also im making a note that there is something missing between where i am and where i want to be with BSS. Let me explain, my knee wobbles even with the empty bar. So there is some stability missing that i need to readdress before i can use BSS to make my right leg muscles stronger which i think it does just well but it doesn't do anything for the stability issue. What exercises do i need for htat? I have no clue :(
