C. Legs

Squats 3x 15, 1x 20 (35 kg = 77 lb) - next time I'll add some weight

Hammer Hacken Squat 3x 15 (20 kg = 44 lb)

Leg Extension - :cry: damn I forgot this exercise today!

Leg Curls 3x 10 (23 kg = 50,7 lb)

Standing Leg Curls 3x 10 (each leg) (5 = 11 lb)

Sled Standing Calf Rise 3x 15 (21 kg = 46,3 lb)

Hammer Seated Calf Rise 3x 15 (5kg = 11 lb)

This was an amazing training, I felt so energetic for the squats. I did 15 mins of eliptical machine for warming up and then 3 sets of warming up squats with lighter weight. Then I could do much better in squatting than last time.

But!!! I am angry I ave hcompletly forgot to do leg extensions! :twisted:

Let's relax today and regenerate:)

52,7 kg = 116,2 lb (no change in weight since last week:( I guess I have to add some more carbs then... :?: )

Today I'm enjoying my day of regeneration of muscles. My body is completly sore after the weekend's legs and upper body workout. Tomorrow I will hit my back and biceps. I can't wait :D

To put on the weight for muscle mass, it will have to be more protein.

Carbs are energy and energy is needed to provide the labor for the regeneration of muscles, but you need the amino acids in protein to be the bricks for your muscle mass house (body).

Are you supplementing with a protein powder? or a protein bar?

Otherwise, definitely add more protein/carb rich foods to your diet!
