So to build on this, I have already mixed things up a bit. I started off biting off a bit more than I could chew...not in the exercise quantity, but in the weight dept. Need to take it slower!!
My first day back at the gym and I figured I was going to do squats and just put 95 on the bar, felt good and increased it to 115 and by the end of that set my knee was hurting really bad. I tried a 3rd set but couldn't get in more than 1 rep as my knee was killing.
It actually hurt all day, not walking on it but if I was sitting and attempting to get up from say a chair it would really hurt. So I decided to do the leg press machine next time and get my muscles and ligaments and joints used to pushing weights again. Knee still hurt and it still does, so I'm taking this week fully off of legs other than calves. I figure I'll hit legs next Monday lightly with machines and build up some weight so I can work my way back into squats.
That all being said I think I'm going to start moving into an upper/lower split. Still figuring out the exact routine and exercises I want to incorporate but the time spent at the gym these last 2 weeks have been great and a real motivator. My eating hasn't been so clean, I'm passing up so much junk and processed foods where in the past I would gorge myself.
