I am able to start to rebuild my squat without a box finally. Knee pain is all but gone so I am exclusively going to be doing Olympic style squatting, starting VERY light to build it back up and trying very hard not to rush the progress.
Dialing it back in weight is hard for me as I am going to want to skip 5 steps, but that’s how you aggravate shit again. Hoping I am able to use my head and not my ego.
