Was able to get great depth and definetly a great workout for hams and glutes not just quads. I actually hit muscular failure completely to my suprise on a set of only 300lbs. I was pretty pre-fatigued but mental battle of pushing for more reps hadn't even begon yet. Next thing I know 50% through a rep I lost all power and it started coming back down on me as my leg gave out and other one flew in out of nowhere to save me before the catches did lol. I might hit these first next day.

    Nicccce. I'm a fan of high rep leg presses. Let us know how growth in the legs go.

    two things I've been doing is pre-exhaust my hams before leg presses and doing slow negatives. Check out the article I posted in my log last week. I'm still sore today.

    I did a set of 50-rep leg presses with a wide, low stance. I can barely walk today my quads are so sore.

    Notes It was alright. DB pressing felt good. Found myself slipping into a little lower rep ranges than I have been using. Diets going well. Though I haven't been using my macros I had contemplated earlier. I'm actually not even tracking macros at all or fitday'ing it. I've just been keeping a calorie count in my head, I know how to eat well enough and I'm not pushing into anything crazy lean so for now this is fine. I was a rogue 210 on monday morning start of the diet (which is wierd, I had been 207ish consistenty. I didn't have a pre diet binge the night before or anything like that. Just a strange rogue weight). Tues and wed was 204. 203 today. Look a lot leaner for 4 days, felt it in the jeans today too.

    That's insane, 210 down to 203 in a few days. I know there's always a few pounds that you can drop quickly, but wow.

    I've been stagnant for the past 2 weeks and just went to a straight low-fat daily diet and dropped 4 pounds in 1 week.

    Crazy how the body works.

    If I recall correctly you will be dieting down for about 4-6 weeks? I assume that would get you around 196-198? That would be a solid BW for you and probably showing some strong definition.

    Well done on that pr for DB press mate, good on a cut!

    As cutting is a completely different world to me, how much strength, if any, would you expect to loose in your diet?

    What are your long term goals Rory?

    Nice work mate.

    I still have several more pounds of bloat to lose. 7-8 weeks and we're probably looking at about 190 @ 10%

    Nice work mate.
    Increased strength is pretty normal (for me) for the first few weeks still. By a month (if not a week or two sooner) I'm usually stalled on most lifts. For this shorter diet, there will likely still be strength loss across the board, maybe 10%. For a full 4 month cut well hell, last year I squatted 405x1, 365x6, 315x11 right before a 5 week layoff from cracked ribs followed by 17 weeks of dieting. By the end of the diet I was probably squatting 315x4 or 5. that was probably the most signifigant lift to lose out on though. A lot of that comes right back within a few weeks of increased cals again too. I couldn't squat because of injury right after I ended my diet, but for instance I think my DB OH went from 80x4 to 100x6 in a matter of 5 weeks. A lot of the strength loss has to do with just energy, and poorly fueled muscle, not really muscle loss. It's all part of the mind games that dieting brings on.

    Long term goals are just as big as I possibly can while still staying relatively lean. If someday I happen to fall into a lifestyle situation that I feel I could make it on stage I'l like to. But I'm not sure I have it in me to be a competitor.

    I'm declaring one legged leg press more brutal and excruciating than heavy, high rep squats/lunges. I'm not sure how, seeing as two legged is just another exercise but one legged makes me want to cry like a baby.

    AM cardio yesterday was a fasted 25 minute hike to my hunting spot, then a 25 minute hike out 4 hours later with a novus bar in my stomache. Then I hustled over to the gym and trained legs. Then I went back out for an evening hunt which included two more 25 minute hikes.

    AM weight today was 201, but I slept for a loooong time.

Of course a set of 10 is actually 20 when you consider both legs, and three times the weight isolated per leg. But you would still think the full body exercise the squats are to always take the cake. Probably just because I'm not used to these yet.

    Damn, that is some strong DB Pressing. I've never tried a single leg press but I have done pistol squats and they are brutal also.

    I'm going to agree with you here, Rory. In terms of pain in the legs, I don't think anything beats high-rep leg pressing, single-leg or not. I like squats, but there's just no comparison for me between the two in terms of hitting the quads.

    Some GPP dragging a doe I popped with a flintlock muzzleloader this evening. Freezers already stacked with beef, chicken, salmon and shrimp... I should be set on meat for quite some time now.
