I don't just call this "Leg Day", because that does not do it justice. Almost everyone I know hates squats. I respect and fear them. Like an ancient aztec warrior sacrificing to the gods, I pay homage to the squats once a week. So I named my leg training day "Squat Day" to remember who is the king of lifts...the squat! I had a pretty good workout. My numbers are fairly unimpressive as of this moment, but I will improve.
10 x 250, 8 x 290, 6 x 310
**Not a horrible start on the new program, but it should be at least 65% higher.**
3 x 8
**Felt good for a weak and recovering back**
3 x 20
3 x 8 on each leg
**These kill me at the end of the workout.**
Then I ATTEMPTED my usual 30 minute cardio workout. However, I forgot that when I squat...I cramp on the trreadmill. So I went down like Allan getting tazed by that little fat kid in the LVPD station. I love "the Hangover"! Always a relevent reference somewhere...
I think I did fairly well. I did not cut any corners like I wold have in the past. When I was heavier I was lazy. Now I think my new body subconsciously yells at me to keep going. My weights are low, but I am starting over and I have started out of the gate too fast before. That only leads to catastrophic failures in the long run. My legs will hurt tomorrow.
Side notes: I ate too much yesterday in a little experiment to see how much I could gain and lose in one day. I went from 222.6lbs. to 225.4lbs. That was with little water and a bowl of Cap'n Crunch as a midnight snack. Today has been fairly clean with about 115oz. of water, and my favorite "Weight Watchers" POOP CHILI. I call it POOP CHILI because it makes you poo a lot. Not too scientific, but you get the point.
Keep Moving Foreward,
