Now that I've given my body some rest after the APF Summer Bash, I've began to have some medial knee pain in my right knee. I'm still training hard, but I'm focusing on keeping my low back healthy and addressing my knee issues as well. The goal for 2017 is to end the year completely healthy and have a solid base to build a real training cycle on.

Wednesday I ended up having my PT appointment, and things look to be progressing rather well. The pain is basically gone in my knee, but we know that things still need to be taken lightly for a bit longer. The plan is to be able to take some squats on Saturday, so I opted to keep things more bodybuilding based stuff and get the muscles used to some of the stuff I've got access to. I'm really going to be hammering the reverse hyper to help traction out the back and get my glutes firing really well, especially my left one, so some single leg reverse hypers will likely be done every day I'm back training in the garage. I've got to keep up on my PT stuff, but I'm rather pleased with how this training session went. It was also good to just be in the garage getting after it, since it had been what felt like forever since I got some good work in. It always helps when the girlfriend opts to train with you and make sure you don't do anything stupid.
