My knee was still bothering me today, I'm not sure what the deal is. There's no pain when I squat but it still feels really unstable in the knee cap. I kept the back squats light today just to be on the safe side until I can see Balza or Pete. 

Stephen cut the pistols from my EMOM so I just did scap push ups and axle deadlifts, starting every :90 instead of every minute. Scap push ups were easy, axle deadlifts were really tough. I could barely hold on today and I could only do 170. I tried picking up 180 but I could barely pull it off the ground, my hands just could not get a good grip on the bar. During the deadlift hold the bar felt like it was slipping out of my hands, which is weird because I did the same weight last week and it was fine. I couldn't even hold it on the last rep so Stephen told me to use a mix-grip and end on a good note. 

I have an appointment with Balza tomorrow, I'm really hoping he clears me to go overhead. My shoulder feels completely fine and I feel like I need to start testing it out a bit more. I'm also going to ask him about my knee and see what's up with that. I just want to be healthy and go back to my normal training volume!

Meh, today was decent. 

I did the best I could on the broad jump. I think I really need to watch some technique videos because I was basically just guessing on how to do it correctly. I know my number is pretty pathetic, I need to work on this more. 

Power clean was easy up to 205, although I caught it a bit low. I loaded the bar to 210 but it was basically just a pull, it got nowhere near my chest. 

Double unders were unbroken for the first two rounds, I tripped up at 65 on the third round. GHD sit ups surprisingly weren't that bad, I don't really get dizzy on these anymore, these were definitely not as terrible as they were during regionals practice. My breathing was not great on this.

I started having a weird feeling in my right knee this morning. I thought it would go away by the afternoon but I definitely noticed it during my PM session. There isn't any pain, it just feels like my right knee keeps locking up and isn't very stable. Like, I wouldn't be comfortable split jerking right now and putting pressure on the right leg. I also felt like my hips were unbalanced, I asked Heather and Pat if my right hip looked higher and both of them said they could actually see my right hip was higher than my left. I'm guessing this is contributing to my knee issue. I'm going to make an appointment with Pete for the end of the week.
