March 17, 2011. Week 1 Day 4: Deadlifts/Legs
Deadlift*: 315x5, 345x5, 355x5, 375x3, 385x3, 395x3, 405x1
Front Squats**: 105x10, 135x10, 135x10, 155x10
Glute Ham Raises (no machine put feet under bench and push-up until legs take over): 4x8-10
Lying Leg Curls: 140x8, 140x10, 145x8, 110x20
*My form started getting thrown of around 385x3, my legs pull the bar off the ground easy but my back starts to round, the weight feels relatively light but I cant seem to keep my back from doing it.
**First time doing Front Squats. The weight was light my back again was rounding toward the bottom of my squat.
Note-With my problems with my back rounding in these two (along with the first time I did good mornings) I think I need to really focus on my lower back/abdominal strength and getting back on my heels with my lifts. It almost felt like I wasted a workout after deadlifts, I usually do boxsquats and it kills my glutes/hamstrings, but I figured I should work in some front squats.
