Sunday is the final day of the 4-week adaption cycle for the 4-day intermediate Sheiko program I am running. My knees are starting to ache throughout the day. Not sure if I am just being a bitch. Will continue on with the program but be cautious if my body is telling me it is too much.
edit: tomorrow would normally be the last day of the week program-wise but my gym is holding a PL competition. Hopefully I can stay long enough to see Tee Cummins hit a 1900+ total. Heard he was growing to 242 but he cut down to 220 for his competiton a few weeks back.
This is how my knee tendonitis (or whatever is the name for overuse injuries) started. After trying to train through it for 3 weeks, I eventually had to stop squatting and deadlifting completely for 8 weeks.
My last pain free squatting session before the problem started was in the first week of August. My knees still protest when I squat with 30-40% of my 1RM.
So be careful.
Boris Sheiko himself has some advice on how to deal with these knee problems:
