Thanks to the advice of Daywalker etc, I changed my leg routine today...
Hopefully I can get the weights and the reps up soon, I suffered a bit today from 3 hours of volleyball training on Sunday... It would seem 'volleyball' legs take a few days to disappear.
Leg extensions -
3 x 12, 200 pounds
Squats - (Smith Machine) as my gym doesn't have a squat rack
1 x 12 at 220
1 x 12 at 260
1 x 8 at 350
1 x 2 at 440 (I wanted to see what I could do)
Leg Press (inclined)
1 x 12 at 440
1 x 10 at 520

10 minutes on the bike
Oh and Thanks Raven for the thoughts on my Avatar, I love elephants, I think they are a totally amazing animal, gentle, strong and Vegan yet with the ability to remember people who have hurt them and wait to get their revenge....
You training for a volleyball tournament or something? Sounds fun!
I was never any good at volleyball; but playing on the beach is fun and an awesome legs workout,you're right!
I used to run regularly on the dry sand when I lived at the beach a few years ago -- LOVED it! I miss it so
Early in the morning, the dolphins would be so close to the shore, I would run with them! So beautiful.
Now that is the best legs workout I've ever experienced!
Elephants ARE truly amazing. Sometimes I wonder if some just stand out more to me because some animals exhibit certain traits more easily recognized, and, while I am anthropomorphizing, this allows me to relate in a more intimate way; when it's possible that they all actually have similar traits, they just aren't detectable by me. So perhaps the fleas and ants are just as gentle and strong and get their -- well, let's call it, "reckoning"
as well as elies; and I just can't see it
Anyway, getting way off track here,
Good luck with your training, and I look forward to seeing your progress!
