Mood: Pretty good.
Went in thinking I was going to cover some good ground. What actually happened was a whole other story.
Here’s the workout:
- Back Squats 3 reps 135#
- Back Squats 5×3 225#
- Back Squats 5 reps 225#
- Leg Press 5×8 275#
Warm-ups were no problem. Then I add on another plate.
That 225 was killer for some reason. I didn’t feel secure nor strong.
I knocked out as many sets as I could but dang I felt weak.
I decided to do some Pause Leg Presses and that felt good.
I think tonight was a fluke. I am going to try for 260# next week and see what happens.
Here are some other changes:
Front Squat – Maybe do these as a warm-up. 3×5 at 135#
Goblet Squat – I think my Back Squat form sucks. I am going to use some Goblet to correct that mess. 3×8 70#
Leg Press – If I do a pause at the top and extend my toes as far as I can, it feels really good. Next time, take it to 285# and keep my feet together to really emphasize my outer quads.
Supplements: C4 taken 30 minutes prior to working out.
Food: 3,308cal 383c 101f 173p
If tonight was a fail, it wasn’t due to my diet. Carbs were on point.
