Tried doing step ups... knees still not okay with it. But I needed to hit quads, theyve shrunk! To my surprise, I could leg press with limited ROM and it was fine. Finally have some decent quad work done. Even cooler - I think it helped my knees! My ROM increased by the 5th set. Maybe it was nice to lube up my knees with high rep leg presses.

Love how I can hit high volume without an issue when I'm gaining weight.

Haven't updated in a while - i had cut down to 184lbs ish. Was looking pretty skinny, but strength still there. Doing a mini-bulk of sorts for a month or so before I hard cut back down for a week or 2.

There's nothing like squats. I try adding in step ups, good mornings, leg presses... but I feel that nothing hits my legs like good old ATG squats. My knees are still messed up though. Better than before, but definitely can't hit ATG. Even the step ups didn't feel good at all.

Really want to make my shoulders a lot bigger. My upper chest has come in nicely with the higher inclines. And my upper traps have responded well to barbell shrugs, especially since I barely ever used to hit them. Need more shoulders though.

I recommend high angle rows to sternum/rib cage.
Blows up my side and rear delts - getting that Dwight Howard/David Robinson look....

It's kind a like a safer upright row, or slow clean pull  :trollface:

gotta try these... thanks!

My knees have been feeling a lot better. Except i went on a ~8mile hike yesterday which set me back a lot again. The hike was nice though, worth it I think.

AirBnB workout. Have a busy few days traveling, i doubt i’ll get to a gym. The push ups were surprisingly effective for my tris, only a little for my pecs. Couldnt do dragon flags under the bed - bed was too light.

Gym's closed for 2 weeks due to the corona virus
not sure what other gyms are open

orderd a chin up bar for at home, also 20lb dumbells for my delt work. lateral raises adn bent over rear delt flyes.
explosive incline push ups are surprisingly difficult. they target my tris a lot more than my chest, but should be enough for now. maybe ill find another gym to go to once or twice with a friend during this time
