For some reason, right knee was really bothering me. I could feel myself shifting my weight to my left leg as I worked up to my single with 330. However, once I lowered the weight a tad for my first work set, it seemed to be sufficiently warmed up and I could squat evenly.

EDIT: I did work a midnight shift last night, I know that lack of sleep sometimes causes my joints to be sore. Add that to a knee that is already finicky and that may explain why it was worse than normal today.

EDIT #2: It was also my 3rd leg session in 6 days, hitting PR's in all 3 sessions, that may have something to do with the knees being sore.

In spite of the pain, I hit a nice PR with 315x5 chain squats.
