I look forward to leg days, now. I am starting to love squat day more than any other day of the week. I have no idea why, it certainly is not much fun while gutting out a couple reps in a last set, but for some reason, I feel like I wanna go squat every day instead of doing my other workouts during the week.
I honestly almost decided to just forget deadlifts totally, and do squats twice a week in my current program, I couldn’t decide if I would just do the same 5/3/1 template twice, or if I would do some low reps, working up to a max on the 2nd squat day, hehe. I controlled myself and decided to at least keep deadlifts in for a cycle or 2, but I might end up doubling up the squats eventually.
I used to hate them so much.[/quote]
Went through the same thing last year, but then I started getting some tendonitis in my right hip. Weird fucking spot to have that. So after a great squat workout legs are sore and righ hip hurts to walk or sit down.
So I have layed off squat for a while to hope to heal it up. It hurt some yesterday but nothing like the past. I am making another run on the DL and Squat and laying off the upper body like I have been.
Anybody else able to do hard and heavy on all the big 4? I just cant do it I have to cycle through them.
