60 Year Old Man Leg Day


I turned 60 last week and started a leg routine a few weeks ago of squats: 5X135 10X135 15X135 20X135 followed by a high rep set of leg presses. I added 5 pounds each week and today I got 5X195 10X195 15X195 20X195 followed by 25 reps on the leg press with 11 plates. I wanted 35 reps but just couldn't push anymore. This looks deceptively simple on paper but it has been a challenge.


That doesn't sound easy to me, good job!


Careful man, don't want you to break a hip!

lol jk man :wink: sounds tough.
