It was a big lap-a-thon training day today. Okay, maybe not much different than other leg days, but when I was done training, I have to admit I was thinking about how sore my legs might be at my son’s fundraising lap-a-thon tomorrow. Good times ahead…
Quads: Squats (3×15,12,10 + X Reps); Sissy Squats (3×10 + X Reps)
Hamstrings: Alternate leg curls (3×15,12,10 + X Reps); Stiff-legged deadlifts (3×10 + X Reps)
Calves: Standing calf raises (5×50,40,30,20,12(10)(8)—drop)
Note: My current split is based on the POF MMX Mega-Mass Workout in the new e-book MMX Fast Mega-Mass Workouts–the Max-Muscle X-pansion System.
Continuing with the back-to-basics approach for this week meant that Squats were the big leg movement today. I tried them with a slight pause at the bottom, and that upped the intensity quite a bit. Because of limited equipment, I went with a heavy enough weight that they were tough, but tried to balance that all out with enough time under tension, so the reps were a bit slow, too. Pain to gain! No big changes were made otherwise, though, and legs were shakin’ and bakin’ afterwards. Hopefully I’m not limping around and looking older than I really am tomorrow.
