okay - I hate leg day.. but it's the area that benefits the most.

Switching gears - after hashing it out w/ PowermanDL - gonna back off on the cardio and distance run/hike thing (gulp) - and try keeping it 20 - 30 mins max 3 times a week. (part of me continues to go huh?)


Leg press - (fav) 210
3 excercises - toes in 3 set 15 rep
- heals in 3 set 15 rep
- pushing with heals 3 set 15 rep

Lunges: (I hate these - can never keep barbells aligned perfectly - feel like I'm concentrating more on that then the lunge - but)
3 set 15 rep

Leg Extensions: 105lbs (fixed typo)
4 set 15 rep

Seated Leg Curls: 170
3 sets 15 rep

everyone is telling me to do squats - not wild about them... I'm whipped this afternoon and I stink. Write more next week.

Holy ****! 185 lb leg extensions? you must have some killer legs there..

Nice job on starting and journal, and yes do squats. They are the best exercise ever and if anyone ever tells you different beat their ass. You want a sexy ass, you gotta have them squats......

Another chick - sweet!


Cardio is a tool of Satan. In fact, I think that the whole seventh circle of Hell is nothing but treadmills and stairmasters, as far as the eye can see. tuttut. I hope you learned your lesson - it's best not to even toy with evil.

Damn girl! You're strong :thumbup:
Are you gonna have to resort to single leg work for a while?

CG: The 7th circle of hell is 3# pink dumbells and a Richard Simmons aerobics class.

Oh, man. I must've got the seventh mixed up with the eighth again.


How embarrassing.

Single leg work - not going to do as much weight obviously and reps - while the other is out of commission - so I'll scale it back - so when I'm able, I don't have one doing the bulk of the work etc.

Me strong? nah not really - always had leg strength - I'm5'10" and not a stick either. My consistancy however :rolleyes: eh .. yeah

so I wrapped my knee in an ice pack (tied around my knee w/ panty hose *LOL*) I've done this three times now for about a 1/2 hour and I get some of the movement back - that's a relief anyway.

did situps this am - (no hooking my toes though - yikes) and did curls 20 mins -

shoulders, arms and back at the gym at work taday (with any luck the freak from work won't show up).

more to follow -

*shudder*

...nice work on teh new journal, don't sweat the leg thing, it'll recover itself if ya let er heal, i busted up my hip a year ago, kept pushing it hard, then it just gave out, damn testosterone *pumps fist*

...another thing, treadmills may not be the acest thing for your joints, if you have access to an elliptical i would use that or even better would be to do some sprint work, either intervals or somethin along those lines.

eewww...sorry I asked....

Have to agree with 'da Pup here. Stay off of the treadmill for a while and get thee to the elliptical trainer. I would avoid sprint work for a while. Just kinda ease back into stuff.
Oh, and have a doctor check the knee out! ;)

knee is feeling a little better - okay to take the stairs, but getting up (if I'm sitting down) and putting weight on that leg to do so - gives me a sharp pain on the back of my leg (under my knee).

Anyway - I'm doing half the weight on the leg press and using both legs (obviously the good leg is shouldering more of the weight).

will write more later.

came to the understanding today that if I'm 300 pounds, people are going to stare, if i'm 110 pounds people are going to stare and I need to get over my social phobia about working out in the gym. Torn knee is feeling better but I pay attention to it on my workouts, which have been few and far between. I work the

sled - 105# 3 excercises toes in, heals in, straight out.
ab machine crunches - 60# 3 sets of 40 rep. (I love that workout)
military press - 100 pounds 3 sets 15 rep (front and back)


didn't go for overkill - am not feeling my best.

Weight of 110 - at what height?

Hrd2hndl
06-06-2003, 11:51 AM
Is was extreme example -

If I'm 5'10" and 110 people will stare
If I'm 5'10" and 300 people will stare.

the point being was that being uncomfortable w/ attention is nothing unique - no matter what I look like people are going to look and need to get over my phobia about that.

nough said.

Well I think people are staring because, judging from your avatar, you are attractive. But as you said, thats just something you will have to get over and get used to. Whenever I sense people staring at me, or I catch myself staring at someone, I remind myself that I should be worried about what I'm doing and not worry so much about what anyone else is doing. I usually barely have enough time to spend in the gym as it is :).

I just flip off people that stare. Well, not really but it would be nice.

I'm with fuzz. I get in there and get so concentrated that I don't notice it anymore.
