Surprisingly, everything felt great today. My knees always hurt with squats these days, I can't figure out why. Pity (and everyone else), I think my form is alright, but I've posted videos to get other opinions. I can't squat deeper than that right now, but I'm at least close. One thing to consider is that due to the accident, I have ACL, PCL, and MCL damage in both knees. Not very much, but nothing else is going to heal any more without reconstructive surgery. Hopfully I'll never need that. Posted a deadlift vid too, not having any problems but just a form critique. Looking at the video I notice that I tend to straighten the legs then the back, I'm assuming I should probably be doing one fluid motion so I'll keep an eye on that. I'm finally squatting more than I bench. Sorry the vids are sideways, I didn't know. And I know I'm a stick these days.

Squats: 145 up 10
Bench: 140 up 5
DL: 225, up 15
Dips: 32.5 up 2.5
Abs: 20 (watch form next time)

Weight today was 153.0. Going up real quick, and I have no idea why.

I'm going to be decreasing calories by 300 starting today. Since I started lifting I've gained 6 pounds, or 2 pounds a week. I'm pretty surprised by this as I'm only eating 36-3700 a day depending on activities, but I do see weight coming on, and not fully in a good way.

Watch your DL form. It seems you might be stiff leggin it a little.

Looks like I am, now that I see a video. I'll be concentrating on one fluid motion, my biggest temptation is to just bend over then crouch so that's what I've gotta watch. And I've already got some Chucks

Overheads are not going well already, and squats are still hurting the knees like crazy. Going to talk to my surgeon soon and see what insight he can give, cause it isn't a whole lot of fun.

Squat: 155 up 10
Overhead: 85 missed last rep
Rows: 135 up 5
Chinups: pulled a muscle doing pullups, so I did some hammers. 2x8x35
Abs: done

OH Squats are a brutal exercise. I mean they have excellent payoffs but *very* taxing. Start light.

Sorry, should have clarified- overheads as in military press.
Still brutal, if you ask me

You have mobility issues. Your squats are not deep and your Deadlift form is not good either.

You need to do mobility drills as a warm-up before each and every one of your workouts. Check out these videos to learn the drills. Select 8-10 of them every workout day and do them before you begin lifting.
