    How can a brudda hit the glutes with knee pain?
    Cottage cheese for dinner, Greek yogurt for dessert, eat that everyday an' it will make your butt hurt.

    Work up to pistol squats (single-leg squats). Safe, no need for weight on the back. Hard. Easy to add weight (just hold it in your hand) if that's your desire.

    The bigger question is why do your knees hurt? Possibly box squats depending on the knee pain and Romanian dead lift will target all of the posterior chain. Glute ham raises are great for strengthening the posterior chain without using weight.

    Slipped in a frozen stream while shouldering a ladder at work (damn those long phone line drops through the woods!). Knee met rock. This will be temporary soreness i'm certain. Are pistols out of the question? Prefer bodyweight and don't have access to equipment other than sandbags.

    Good call. They were on the to-do list. Now that I can get both arms out in front of me again, it sounds like they've moved to the do list.

    Too Jacked was rocking at 20 minutes of 120% of his FTP wattage, I would imagine.

    2X75 24kg kettlebell swings + farmer's wals with KB held overhead
    Human flag practice - briefly got both legs out on L side, crappily but making progress
    5X wall walks (walk hands down wall into bridge), hold 30s bridge, walk back up
    2X16 side lunges, as low as possible

    7 a.m. work call means no trainer time today.

    Fitting it in.

    15/15 sprints X 20 X 2

    20x3 goblet squats

    That's all I got.

    single leg squat on a bosu ball.
    then balance on that leg for 60 seconds.
    switch legs.
    repeat x4 but add 30 seconds to balance each set.

    120% of my pathetic Functional (tested) Threshold. I'm on a mission to get my FTP close to what it was 8 years ago without drama.

    phew, I hear ya! Just finished 8mins of what was once my 2x20 bread and butter. Oh well, felt good to sweat and hurt.

    Sure sounds like you're well on your way if you're doing 120% for 20, no? I think that pFTP is selling you short.

    60 minutes on treadmill at a brisk walking pace. Get off at each 5 minute mark and do 2 different kettle bell movements or kettle bell and push ups.

    It was harder than I thought.

    5X5 pistol quats
    3X1 handstand pushups, full range
    About 2 hours of bike commuting, Zone 2.
