Thanks my friend!

So i finally get to log a workout. Today we did legs. First we did pt by running up and down a local hill called willard hil. Its a half mile of pure pain, and after running it a few times we did lunges and power jumps up it. It was a nice warmup that most would call a brutal workout. NOT US.

Soon i had my superpump in my hand, and it was off to the gym. One of the guys i train with is an awesome powerlifter. He's incredibly strong, but i know a lot more about training than he does (doesnt that drive u crazy!), so today i introduced him to training with partial lifts. He thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and i bet he'll be back to the world of partials very soon.

Partial dead squats (squats starting from a dead stop at the bottom, with the bar on the safety rails. The bar was positioned so we started above parallel, hence the title of "partial")-
95x5
135x5
225x5
275x5
315x5
315x5
315x5
220x10

I'm going to feel these in the morning!

Calf press on the hack squat machine-
220x6x4

Good mornings-
95x20
135x20
135x20

Leg extensions-
90x22 (failure)

I love doing good mornings, because i always wonder what people are thinking. Do they think i'm doing squats with horrible form, or do they just think i'm going to royally **** up my back? Either way, they felt great on my hips and glutes.

I really enjoyed this session. The partial dead squats nailed my quads which feels amazing. I'm looking forward to more sessions like this in the future.
