4/15/13

Squats
45x5x2
135x6
225x6
315x5
350x3x3

Leg press (rep goal 4x30)
675x10/8/6/6

Weighted incline sit-ups
25x15x4

Barbell Calf raises
405x8x4

After I finished my squats and moved on, I started to regret not doing another set or three. I was feeling strong, it was just some mental difficulty while under the bar that convinced me to move on. My brain said it was too heavy even when my legs said they could do more. The leg presses were definitely tough today, which is exactly what I've been looking for. I've been hopin to hit the right weight that leaves my legs shaky when I get up. The sit-ups were ok, but I see that I've neglected direct an work for too long, so I'll be needing to integrate more into my routine.

My Training Log

Personal tips that I've learned along my still short journey:

Leave your ego at the door.
Prepare. Showing up dehydrated, hungry, and tired will guarantee failure.
Be ready to fight for that grinder of a PR.
Listen and learn. Absorb everything you can, and assimilate that knowledge.

Squat: 415lbs
