    Beltless highbar w/ monster-mini band around knees and 3-ct pause: 135x5, 225x5, 285x3

    This variation's more promising than the ones a few days back. I think I've sussed out my underlying problem, mainly being a tight TFL and room for some posterior glute med work. Going to keep to the core/posterior chain focused work while stretching/rolling (TFL) and strengthening (PGM) until the bursitis and/or tendinopathy calms down, but I'll maybe play with some band-around-knees squatting by feel on the side. I have a loose program while I rehab with some room on bench days (like today).

    Bench to 7th pin: 345x6

    Hypers: 4 x 95x8
    Beltless suitcase hold: 2 x 185 x (20 counts), 2 x 205 x (20 counts)

    More core/posterior chain work. Feels great. I need to just do this and lay off the injury completely a while, even if my quad strength regresses or whatever (I mean, hell, I've done a lot worse for my long-term training trying to maintain it through this injury).

    Low bar squat: 2 x 240x8, 240x15
    Single-Leg RDL: 4 x 155x8

    Trying to ease back into squatting yet again. Artificially dropping max to about 60% for my working set calculations. The work today felt 'healthy', so I hope that slooow and steady gets me back to normal... eventually.

    Bench: 3 x 280x7

    This's all been going really fucking bad.

    I've seen a GP (twice), chiro (three times), physio (three times), sports med doctor (once). Seeing an osteo tomorrow, and another physio next week. Getting a referal to another sports med specialist. Still fucked up.

    Basically this injury in December is the worst I've had to deal with in my lifting career.
