Haven't given up, still injured.

Still haven't seen the specialist.  Right knee continues to be sore day after day.  I'm working the upper body, but nothing terribly formal.  Did some bench presses the other day and was still able to hit 225x3x5 so, not too terrible.  Decided to diet since I wasn't going to put on muscle anyways - down to 230 lbs from 246.

Anyhow, hoping to get back into it seriously before the summer.  Will log anything worth mentioning.

Oh yeah - getting laser vision correction next week and can't lift anything over 20 lbs for three weeks.

Still playing with dumbbells (80x3x5)

Thu, 15 Jan 15

OHP: 45x10,  115x5,  135x5,  145x5, 150x3x5
DB Seal Rows: 50x5, 70x5, 80x5. 85x3x5
DB Bench: 50x10,  65x5, 75x5. 80x3x5 

Was pretty hard. I'll keep the same weights next day.

Didn't die, so I will keep going. (DB 70x3x5)

Tues,  13 Feb 14

OHP: 45x10,  115x5,  135x5,  145x3x5
DB Seal Rows: 50x5, 60x5, 70x5, 80x3x5
DB Bench: 50x10,  60x5, 70x3x5

OHP and Rows increased as they went fine.  Presses were a bit iffy,  so left them at 70 and felt better.
Knee isn't worse or better.

Boring upper body stuff (DB 70x5)

Sun,  11 Jan 15

DB Bench Press : 50x10, 60x10, 70x5, 60x3x5
DB Seal Rows : 50x5, 60x5, 70x3x5
OHP: 45x10, 115x5, 135x3x5

Bought some dbs and hooks so I can do something.  I seem to be able to moderately OHP without knee issues - but I won't know for sure until I see how I feel tomorrow.  Seal Rows are kind of interesting,  and isolate the back and arms quite well.
