DarthPenguin is off to a bad start

Leg Workout

Squats :

85kg x 5
90kg x 5
95kg x 5
100kg x 5
105kg x 5

These felt ok so should be able to increase again next week (hopefully!)

Romanian Deadlifts

70kg x 5
75kg x 5
80kg x 5
85kg x 5
90kg x 5

These also felt ok though my grip started to feel tough at the end. Dont want to wear straps though as i want to increase my grip strength too for grappling

lunges (unweighted)

3 x 10

Havent done these before so decided to add them in unweighted til i get the form nailed then will gradually add weight. Am adding these as i have had knee problems in the past and should help with knee stability i hope

superset kettlebell calf raises (standing) and chin ups

28kg kbs in each hand x 3 sets 18reps
chin ups x max reps - managed 4 in 3 sets

decided to add in chin ups as i think my arms are one of the main weak points on several lifts so going to add in a few more arm exercises on my training days
