Well I did legs today.
Because im new to squats, ive been trying to find the right weight. I started just barely being able to do the bar (i broke out in a sweat doing that). It wasnt heavy, it was just that I couldnt balance. Now I can put 15 pounds on each side and do them quite easily. Progress
Ill add more th next time so I can get my reps done to 6-8
Hack squats were a bit weird for me. I felt alot of tension in my knees and my quads didnt get the work out I thought they would. Anything I should keep in mind here?
The leg curls were fine and went without a hitch.
The straight legged dead lifts were also quite effective. While the weights were a bit light on my hamstrings, my lower back really felt it. Is this normal?
The standing calf raises were also fine. My question is, whats the best way to do them? Holding on to dumbells and do them on stairs? Or should I just do them on the machine?
