Heavy short pyramid

My right knee is still swollen from my 10K run on Saturday unfortunately so squatting was out of the picture this week.  I still wanted to try to do deadlifting since the movement doesn’t require as much bending of the knees.

I mixed things up a bit, instead of doing a 5x5x5 at a static number I did 5 reps at 325, 2 reps at 345 and one painful rep at 365 that felt like it was way too much back.

My leg ext/curl numbers were down as well due to my troublesome knee.
