Leg Day (Today!)

Warm-up leg extension
3x15

Squat
16,16,13,10,6 (I manned up and did 315 for the first time in 6 months. Close-calls do rattle you.)
-Drops-
12,16,20

Leg Press
20,18,16,12,10,6 (Wide foot placement, 8 plates per side max, knees to chest)
-Drops-
14,18,20,20

Stationary BB lunges
3x15 (I only threw a dime per side on, I was pretty toast by now)

Finisher leg extension
3x20

Straight-legged deads
4x12 (Hams were toast, quarter per side max)

Uni-lateral standing ham curl
4x10 per side

It was great to throw another plate on the squat. After limping along for a while, literally, I’m looking forward to moving some lightweight again (405 ass to grass). The pump after the working sets at the leg press was insane so I figured it would be even greater afte a few drops. All in all, it was a good leg day. The tall rack was clear (some guy wasn’t doing crunches or curls in it), I had some new tunes on my Ipod, and I had plenty in the tank. If I can walk tomorrow, I didn’t hit it hard enough.

I’m liking this thread. Heres some Ronnie Front Squat’n vids and other leg work:

The front squatting is pretty amazing. I thought I was doing well working up to front squatting 315 for reps. That video made me feel like a little girl.
