well fellas I wish I had a heavy day to post for my first session but today was light legs. I was still quite sore in my quads from the heavy lower day I did Saturday. I try to keep the rest to 60 seconds inbetween sets on light days and focus on control and contraction.
Unilateral leg press: 135lbs x 25, 180 x 20, 225 x 15 (These burn!)
Barbell walking lunges: 95lbs x 30, 95 x 30, 85 x 30 (15 each leg. CARDIO!)
Barbell stiff leg deads: 135lbs x 15, 155 x 12, 155 x 12 (love the stretch/contract in hammies)
Leg extensions: 145 x 18, 130 x 15, 115 x 15 (Very controlled and slow eccentric!)
Calf raises on leg press: 360 x 18, 360 x 18, 360 x 18, 270 x 15, 270 x 15 (again, stretch/contract! No bouncing BS!)
There is my light leg day! This routine is very different from what I have been doing the past couple years so I am still feeling it out but I like it so far. My legs need a tremendous amount of work and I think the light day will be a benefit as opposed to just one heavy leg day a week. Definately hits the legs in a whole different way and I think it is benificial to incorporate different fibers.
Tomorrow is day off but check in on thursday for a brutal upper body blast!
