Squats, you make me weak in the knees

So leg day rolled around again today, as it seems to every Tuesday. Things started off slowly, as it was the end of a long day.

The squats weren't as good as would have liked them to have been.

Nonetheless, I pressed on and found myself pouring buckets of sweat with a great leg pump that I'm sure will be the cause of much soreness on the morrow.

Exercise order of the day:

Warmed-up with a 400m run

Back Squats: Sets {135 lbs x 15; 225 lbs x 12; 265 lbs x 6; 225 lbs x 8}

Wide Stance Squats: 1 Set of 135 lbs for 12

Front Squats: 135 lbs for 12 reps, also only one set

Stiff-Legged Deadlifts: 4 sets {135 lbs x 12; 225 lbs x 12; 275 lbs x 12; 315 lbs x 6}

Barbell Lunges: 2 Sets {135 lbs x 8}

Leg Press: 3 Sets {320 lbs x 30; 410 lbs x 25; 500 lbs x 25}

Lying Leg Curls: 3 Sets of 12 reps with 90 lbs or so (Not really sure with those machines)

Some standing calf raises and then some light stretching.


Quite a bit of volume, but I am eating a tonne right now so hopefully I'll be able to recover well enough.

Perhaps I'll get a massage from Mrs. Oddbody (hopefully she is reading this)

Off to bed!
