Went to lift today with the sole purpose of really hammering some squat volume, and that is exactly what happened.
Today is the first day I attempted squatting with no sleeves, no light wraps and using a straight bar in a while because of the left knee issue. It has been feeling very good and as long as I am sensible about my weight progression back to where I want to be, all will be ok.
3ct pause squats

Light weight but since I haven’t lifted much from below parallel in quite a while, that part of the lift was slow. I kept the rest periods below 60 seconds on the working sets.

Seemed like a good idea at the time. Afterwards not so much.
