Today's workout -
olympic squats - RI 3 minutes
set #1 - 10 reps at 135 lbs (warm up)
set #2 - 15 reps at 225 lbs
set #3 - 15 reps at 225 lbs PR
First time ever venturing to that high of reps, it's like another world. Pretty big PR. I was planning on doing a third set but I didn't know how my body would react. My legs were gonna 'splode with pain.
DB RDL's - RI 2 1/2 minutes
set #1 - 15 reps at x2 100 lbs
set #2 - 15 reps at x2 100 lbs PR
alternating single leg extensions - no rest
8 reps each leg at 90 lbs x2
Awesome workout, never thought I'd find myself willingly do 15 rep squats, but whatever. Squats went perfectly, they were all deep(not quite ATG) and went up smoothly up to the last rep. I didn't feel much like puking till after my workout was over. I was doing my cooldown walk and after a minute it was too much to stand. I could feel that shit creeping up my throat. Short workout, but my previous lowerbody workout was brutal so I lowered the volume. This was brutal also, but in a different way.
I was so anxious of my squats I forgot my pen and paper to log, my gym pass, and I left my cell phone in my pocket. Glad it's over!
Time off to rest starts now! Ahhhh.........
Weight was 179 lbs this morning, slow bulk has been going fine, although it there have been somedays where my diet is not-so-slow bulk.
Don't sweat it dude. I am going to get fat this winter, its going to be great. I am going to order about ten 6lb tubs of mussle milk, and drink about 8 muscle milk shakes a day.
good job on the PR squats.
I didn't know cats could hold that much weight on their back.
Be careful going to wide on the squats though. it puts a lot of pressure on the hips. Most guys that squat really wide use squatter briefs to keep everything tight. So, just make sure you aren't to wide that you can't control. Otherwise you might find yourself using one of your nine lives.
It's friday night, that means I can treat myself to a cheat meal, PIZZA!
I just ate a mound of kidney beans though, hopefully I can work up an appetite in 2 hours.
