Quads with The Dream Killer
Goblet squats 4x8 @ 50lb
Vertical leg press; close stance leg press 4x20
Walking lunges: leg extensions 4x15
Also my first squat day in a month after having been sick and after dropping what is now 12lbs because of being sick :/ Setbacks are real, and I accept them; but it’s frustrating when you’re derailed from your course of progressive momentum. Oh well. Not every training day can be rainbows and sparkles.
I felt short of breath for most of the thing and couldn’t stop coughing. At least I got a pump in my legs.
I also need to go back to the doctor to make sure I’m not dying of lung disease. This is nuts. I’m done being sick.
Box squats to parallel: worked up to a couple sets at 185, which felt so fricken heavy. Then I did some sets at 165lbs. It would be nice to hit 2 plates again soon.
Bandy leg press 3x12 with 6 plates
Leg press 4x12 with 8 plates
RDL 4x12. With 115lbs
5 sets of heavy leg extensions.
Honestly? No. From the beginning I knew exactly what I wanted to look like. And if I had to fight my way to get a flat bench and some dumbbells amidst a throng of rude and sweaty Englishmen, I’d do it. And I did. I kept on doing it and the rude, sweaty Englishmen began to respect me. Most of the battle is showing up. Once you’re there, you have no other choice but to do work. When you train according to your goals and dreams and develop the necessary discipline, fear of anything other than the thought of not achieving your goal fades away.Get familiar with the equipment.
