Squats! (225x4x5)

Tues, 10 Oct 17

Squats: 135x2x10, 225x10, 225x4x5
Seated Calf Raises: 45x5x10
Kneeling Leg Curls: 40x10, 50x10, 60x3x10
Seated Leg Extensions: 140x10, 160x10, 190x3x10

Back into squats - goal for everything was 50 reps... had hoped for sets of 10 across the board, but I found the squats pretty tiring (as in out of breath).  Anyhow, functionally I felt fine.  No joint or muscle issues aside from a little right knee stiffness on the initial squats.  All exercises done without supports.

I'm hoping to work my way up to 5x10 on the squats at 225, then toss on 50 lbs and try to work my way back up to 5x10.  Progress will be slow - but I don't really want to hurt myself again.  I will be doing some walking as well, likely at home on the treadmill, starting next week.
