    Austin's answered confirmed what I suspected. I need to ignore the pain and just follow the program as written. To be clear, my pain is not an injury, it's just inflammation. Sure, I can squat more weight when I'm fully recovered, but that's why the program is based on RPE instead of 1RM percentages.

    As someone with a similar training experience and age to Special Snowflake I also found lower body wasn't feeling fully recovered between sessions in the medium/high stress weeks on the Bridge. I figured it's because of YNDTP - I play several hours of racquetball a week and accept that it hurts my lower body recovery and isn't optimum for my strength progress. Due to birthdays/holidays we skipped a few weeks of RB and I noticed that I still wasn't feeling fully recovered after workouts and was starting to wonder if I wasn't eating/sleeping enough or some other factor. But I expect it's just where I'm at on this run of the Bridge (W4).

    Hearing Austin's response reminds me I need to listen to the body more carefully about what my RPE is rather than listening to my log book.

    Bridge -- Squat Frequency

    I have completed LP and am now training with the Bridge. My only problem with the program so far is the squat frequency. At age 43, my legs don't recover in 48 hours. For example, if I squat 3x5 @ RPE 8 on Monday, my quads and adductors are still sore on Wednesday. I also have patellar tendinitis to deal with. What is the best way to modify the program in this case?
