I have been lifting on and off for about 3 years now. I don't really do it for sports or anything just to getting bigger, stronger, and look better. I decided I should start a journal because for the last month or so I have been doing a form of the westside method and I would like people to oversee what I am doing.
Mon.-ME LEG DAY
Low Box Squat Max 1
1x0@305- I sat down on the box and couldn't get it up at all.
I'm kind of pissed off at this because I got 295 2 weeks ago and now today I didn't go up at all.
Leg Curls 3x15
Glute Ham Raises 5x8
I realized I have been doing these wrong. My gym has the Atlantis setup and it has a pad for your knee then in front of that it has the big round pad. I usually rested my knees on the knee pad but now I do it without my knee touching the pad. Instead my quad/knee touches the round pad a little bit. This makes it a lot harder.
Before I started doing Westside I could do 320x4 on the squat. I'm not sure If I could still get that but I seeing that I only got 295x1 I'm assuming box squats are a lot harder then regular squats.
Did some light cardio to.
20 minutes jumping rope.
2 rounds of shadow boxing.
8 miles on exercise bike.
