Guess what?! I hurt my knee this morning during my leg workout routine... awesome, right?! grrr!
Everything was fine, I started my legday like every legday:
- First Leg Extension: 4x12 - 25kg
- Leg Press: 2x10 - 160kg & 2x12 - 120kg
- Squat: Biggest fail ever!!!
- Calf Press: 4x12 - 40kg
I always warm up before I do my squats, meaning I only take 20 to 30 kg to do some 'warm-up-ass-to-the-grass' before I load up some more weights to prevent injuries.
On my 3rd warm-up rep it happened. I was very low but I couldn't get up anymore, so Ken had to help me , otherwise I would still be sitting on the floor with my 30 kg on the shoulders haha. It actually felt like someone hammered a pin right in the middle of my right knee. So no more squats for me for today...
To finish my ''legday'' I did 4 sets of calf press on the smith machine with 40 kg , as my knee didn't stop hurting.
So my day started pretty shitty... I don't know if I will do legday next week, I have to check how my knee is going.
I hope you all pay attention and listen to your body! It is always better to stop before something worse happens, even though you have a correct form during your exercise. If something hurts, take off some weights or stop doing that exercise!

I wish you all a nice rest of the week and take care of your body , because you it's the only place you have to live in!
