Today I got in there and did my first leg workout in over 4 weeks. It was ridiculously tough and I'm going to be hurting for the rest of the week. Not looking forward to the pain of walking down steps, standing and sitting, and getting in and out of my car lol. Having the intra shake along with not pushing any blood in them for over a month I got a very painful pump today. It especially hit me on leg press. I didn't do any advance techniques today just because doing legs already takes enough out of you and my lungs still feel like I've never worked out a day of my life. It took me 2-3 minutes in between each sets just for me to catch my breathe back and my heart rate to come back down. All in all extremely happy that I was able to get back to leg training and this is a clear sign to me that I'll be able to be on my regular training schedule. Minus the cardio of coarse...I'm enjoying not doing any right now. I was thinking about that last night and for the past 2 years I've consistently done cardio every week so maybe giving my body this long of a break from cardio will do me some good.
- Leg ext - 3 warm up 15-20, 3x10-12
- Leg Press - 5x8-12 (shoulder width foot stance)
- DB Lunges - 4x20 total steps each set
- Squats - 3x8-10
- Lying leg curl - 4x12-15
My strength was pretty much the same on everything except leg press and squats. Once I made it to squats my legs were literally trembling during my sets and I only had 185lb on the bar. Right now my Members Section is ready to roll but it's all up to me when to get it started. I will most likely start it up in the next few weeks I've just been holding off till I'm healthy....don't want to be huffing and puffing on videos lol....sorry for the delays but it is coming soon and I guarantee you will be able to learn and gain tons of knowledge.
