Now that I've given my body some rest after the APF Summer Bash, I'm running an off season training cycle, where my goal is to build upon my healthy movement, and hopefully hit the platform raw, full power in late 2017 or mid 2018, and rack up another 10x bodyweight total.

Thursday evening I went back to the rec to get in some extra leg work. Nothing all that exciting. However, I wanted to monitor what was going on with my knee, so I basically tried to do a plethora of things to see what aggravated it and what didn't. It seems that I can do just about all machine work with no issues, so what I'm experiencing is probably coming from the hip (since the machines are giving me stability). I went ahead and booked an appointment with the university PT clinic for next week to see what's really going on. I'm going to keep training and see what I can muster together, but at least I was able to get something done.
