Okay, so back to business.
Yesterday was leg day at the gym. First day back. Ate some sushi rolls beforehand (nyum num) and then got to squattin.
Did a 10 minute warmup on the stairmaster. I used to have such a hard time on that thing, but now I'm getting good at it and can go faster
Then I did some warmup walking lunges (which I suck at and I think I look foolish doing them)
Did some plie squats to warm up as well, then headed on upstairs where the big boy machines are!
I started doing squats right away, since I had all my energy. I can only squat 70 pounds, but I'm small and not very strong yet. Last week I only did 50, to kinda get the feel of it.
I did 3 sets. It was awesome. I love squats.
I did some deadlifts too. I dunno how much weight.. I don't wear my glasses when I workout and can't read the numbers on the side of the barbells as sad as that is. It was pretty heavy though. I'd say maybe between 35-40 pounds or so. Maybe even 50.
I also did some hamstring curls, seated, and standing.
Calf raises.. I went to town on. I saw a post Future made about doing calf raises but I totally forgot the routine. I would spring up, and then slowly come back down.. and then spring up again. I think there's a waiting period of 15 secs or so but I wasn't sure how long it was supposed to take me to come back down.. So I just went as slow as possible. I didn't wanna hog the calf raise machine anyway lol.
I did 55 pounds on that.
I did some more plie squats, with 17.5 pounds, and used the leg press machine to train glutes, and inner leg. To do that I used a wide stance with toes pointed outward, much like a plie squat.
I worked legs for about an hour or so and I was so tired. My legs were like rubber and it took me awhile to hobble up the stairs to tell my bf (who runs on the treadmill) that I am finished. I almost fell asleep on the ride home and my legs were absolute rubber. I had my protein shake and woke up. then I played video games. Hehehe. Then I ate some of my new kick ass cereal with almonds and hemp seeds. Yum.
Today my glutes, calfs, and hamstrings are sore. My quads are never sore. EVER. No matter how hard I train them. I'm tired today and had a bigass bowl of oatmeal and flax with some soy protein. Added some hemp seeds to that too. And a little soy milk cuz it was dry.
AND THAT IS ALL MY FRIEND.
I'm gonna go out and hang out with my cat on the porch and get some sunshine.
