Monday – Leg Workout

  • Low Bar Back Squat
    • 290 lbs x 5 reps
    • 300 lbs x 3 reps
    • 225 lbs x 7 reps

Comments:

Every set felt easy today which really helped to build my confidence. However, I probably could benefit from doing more warm up sets as I had a little trouble reaching full squat depth on the first set. After the first set I felt  warmed up and had no difficulty squatting below parallel on consecutive sets.

Friday – Legs

  • Squats (w/o belt)
    • 255 lbs, 5 sets x 5 reps
    • 260 lbs, 1 set x 5 reps*
  • Standing Calf Raises (255 lbs), 2 sets x 25 reps

Comments:

* I did an additional set to assess whether I should continue increasing the weight each workout or switch to a different rep scheme. The 260 lbs set I did felt light so I will keep adding weight for perhaps an additional two workouts before dropping to sets of 3 reps.
