Training Log: Kaizen June 22-28, 2020

Still training at about 60 percent as I continue to rehab the knee. Knowing I wasn’t training as heavy, we went more Keto-like the last couple of weeks in an attempt to get both the blood sugar under control and flush as much inflammation out of the knee as possible. Knee is feeling better. Pain is mostly gone, just occasional discomfort. But, now that it is not as inflamed, I can definitely tell it is not consistently stable. Best guess is a small meniscus tear. I’m not paying for an MRI to find out however. They don’t’ often fix that in people my age anyway. Before the injury, I was squatting pure raw: no belt, no wraps, no sleeves. My foreseeable future will include sleeves at minimum anytime I squat now. Survive and Advance.

Weight-wise, I got down to 246 this week. Still trending in the right direction. Sarah and I both ran through the free two-week meal plan over at Diet Doctor. I actually really liked that plan as a metabolic reset. If you are thinking of tinkering with low-carb, give that a run. It takes the thinking out of getting started. I can see us circling back around to that meal plan again. I may have a seperate post on that later.
