A little calf work shouldn't hurt you none. How are the knees? Still having problems? I know you've been at this awhile but could you be letting your knees turn inwards during the squat. In other words, not keeping them in line with your feet?

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

My knees aren't that bad right now.
I think my knees are in line with my feet, but in all honesty I'm not 100% sure about that because most of the time I ware pants so I can't see (which is bad) What I do feels right, I know that doesn't mean that I'm doing is right, but it feels right.
Tomorrow, I will have the wife watch me from behind and I will watch and pay close attention for it aswell, if this is the problem then a few weeks of retraining should be alright.

thanks

Cool. Good luck on that. Probably just need some strengthening time. I take it you are doing full squats, i.e. A2G?

Well, if you have any further problems there is lots of info in the injuries sticky about knees and it pays to be careful but it doesn't sound like a big deal of course. Keep up the good work.

My strengh is still holding in there. Which is good since it's only the 3rd week.
Work has been crazy, so the days changed. I will try to go back to the normal days on week 4
Trying to keep my calories up between 3500 - 4000. Even more if I have some cheat meals

That's an awful lot of supplemental exercises! This program will start accumulating fatigue as the weeks go on with you getting closer to your RM's. To minimize overreaching, you should keep in mind that 5 sets of flat bench more than work your triceps. I don't see a need for the weighted dips.

EDIT: Don't listen to me!! I was thinking about Dual Factor for some reason, not Single Factor like you're doing!
