Training day 02-23-2014

Did a leg workout with no squatting today for the first time in a very long time. I figured it wouldn’t be as bad as it looked on paper but I was wrong.

It was a lot worse than it looked on paper.

Lying Leg Curls for warmups
90 x 4 x 15

Leg Press

Here is where it starts getting silly.

360 x 12
450 x 12
540 x 12
630 x 12
720 x 2 x 20; 45s rest between sets
630 x 4 x 20; 45s rest between first two sets, about 90s rest the remaining sets. I just couldn’t recover that fast to do more.
540 x 2 x 20; feet close, low on the plates; 45s rest
540 x 2 x 20; feet high on the plates, wider stance; 45s rest

Disgusting to walk right now.

Seated Calf Raises
90 x 10 x 20

These got a little rough.

Leg Extension
70 x 30
130 x 20
260 x 10
100 x 2 x 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2; after each rep count, rested for 4-10s and did the next rep count. Two total sets of these.

Seated Leg Curls
130 x 5 x 20

Stiff Leg DL
225 x 4 x 12

I was supposed to repeat the same rep sequence as the extensions for these, but I will be honest, I could barely walk and legs were shaking like a leaf doing these, so I just went for the reps for this one. You can call it what you will, I call it sucking it up and getting the reps in.

A fucking nasty workout. No way around it, it was hard as shit.
