First leg day in 4 months that wasn't a bust
315x2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2
Lying cable leg curls
with the exclusion of the cable curls and the final set of squats I was working at a conservative 60-70% of capable reps. Pissed I coudln't get the 245 and wanted to then do a 20 repper of 265 after, phuck. Started shaking violently all over right after that set that didn't go away for 20-30 minutes.
What is a frog press?
Heels on the top outside corner of the leg press. Bottom pin set, sled drops to the very bottom, lower back rounds in and knees tuck up to either side of your face. Nothing but glutes and hams to get it moving out of that position.
looking big and lean man. Whats up with the bb.com tank though? poser
ALN doesn't make tanks. I do have a one or two I've cut into sleevless's. I'd like to see WBB wear to be honest.
Jealous of the thickness in the chest. WBB refuses to make apparel I would def rock WBB wear in the gym.
dude thats some awesome leg volume!!! your legs mustve been hurting!!! God Bless you brotha!!!
i went hunting specifically for this journal. real pleased to see a leg workout in here. sounds like youre healing up......
looking joocy btw. thick as always. work easing up on you a bit? hope to see some updates man
Nice work as ever mate, looking huge.
Works big time eased up, just 40 hours. I got really, really, really beat up from the 72hrs. It was a mistake on my part keeping my calories around maintenance during that time. Since then I've raised the food, got tons of good rest and my body has been recouping well. I'm still beat up though...
I did however strain a bicep or something in my forearm at work and am not training back atm. I also made the decision to stop squatting atf for my back sake, unfortunately this is taking a toll on my knees only going to parallel.
I made a decision last week to alter my rep ranges. For the past year and half (at least the majority of it) I've worked in a 4-8 rep range. I'm moving up to a 9-12. If I didnt get 9 reps I'll drop the weight, if I make it to 12 I'll up it. I'm really shocked initially how little low rep stength has carried over to high rep endurance. The weights I've chosen feel feathers for the first few reps, then once I get around 7 or 8 they've felt like they've instantly doubled. Somewhat interesting actually. It humbling using some light weights but I think for the best.
God I wish I were healthy enough to get emaciated again right now.
Theres no point to this post. I was just going through my phone and reliving some bittersweet days from the summer.
Wish you had competed?
Mentally tough dealing with the hunger, cravings, weakness, lethargy. The more frightening side is the solitary confinement it brought and the depression, anxiety, panic attacks etc.
I can deal with the first set. I'm in no place to take on the second.
it was intense anxiety and unpredictable outbursts of rage for me. never experienced anything like it before. the details are too embarassing to post.. its all pretty substantially psychotic behavior (srs)
