12/02/13 - Lower Body 1

Squat (prescribed reps)
165x1 (5)
176x1 (5)
187.5x11 (5+)

Solid, felt a lot better than last week.

Speed Box Squat (1 extra level)
90+blue bands x3x8 sets

Felt fast and explosive. Tweaked my box squat form a little and really drove up with my hips whilst still keeping my back nice and tight. Felt good.

The box we use has a basic box then three smaller pieces to increase the height so for this I put it up by one extra level.

Leg Press
150x10
225x6
300x6
365x6
400x2
325x10

Wanted to do this for fun. It didn't go very well. I'll go back to RDLs next week.

Barbell Reverse Lunges
60x10
70x10
80x8

Ouch.

Good session, pleased with the squats.

Thank you for your continued help man, I've actually done these a bunch of times recently, it's just a pain trying to balance anterior and posterior work on upper body days. I'll definitely throw them in though.

Good luck! Looks like a well thought out plan. Crush it.

You are still going to post funny pictures though right?
A bunch of my friends like football anyway, so it's not too bad - I do like pissing them off by calling association football 'soccer' though!

Appreciate your support mate, and hell yeah I am.
