Just got back from the gym after doing legs tonight, and did a max leg press of 1067lbs twice, but did 1027lbs 5x just before...then did 6 sets of squats at 225lbs, then did lunges across the gym with a 45lb dumbbell in each hand. and finallly did calf raises with 325lbs...

For those that dont know, my truck has abt 10in of lift and 40in tires...its gonna suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck gettin in and out of it tomorrow, and even worse the next day. I love a good leg workout, anybody else go hard in the gym and suffer the next day?

No pain, no gain. :lol:

I used to workout pretty hard, too hard in fact. To the point where it basically did more harm than good. So I definitely know what you're talking about. I'll be surprised if you can lift your leg anywhere near high enough to get in your track. :lol:

i almost dropped the 1027 lift, bec when my legs came toward my chest it made me fart and i strated crackin up and had to hurry up and shove it back up and lock the sled in so i could finish laughin.

i knew i was doin good when id bring my legs far enough to me chest i could feel my ass cheek muscles gettin real tight

I miss working out. I used to have a really nice setup in my garage. Unfortunately I moved into an apartment so I have no garage to set my equipment up in anymore. I have a gym membership but it's still just not the same..
Man, when I had my gym setup I was living out in the desert, I would be out there abusing my body everyday in the heat. Hottest temp I ever saw was on one of my cardio days, guage said 131F. Didn't help that I kept the place closed up tight to make the heat stay in. Nothing quite like working out in intense heat.

thats insane! i HATE doin cardio so much, i do it, but much rather strentgh training. I have a membership to snap, its a 24hr gym here. I used to be in the gym everyday bec i was fat when i was younger and wanted to change, so id go beastmode everyday. I used to be able to benchpress 300lb max but thats long gone after highsiding a yr and a half ago

Same here, I unfortunately just got lazy though. I tried to keep my cardio workouts fun, it would always change but my favorites were always working the bag, jumping rope, and especially swimming. I tell you, when I started including swimming laps in my regular routine, my bodyfat % dropped quick.

I go to the gym 5 times a week, I don't do heavy sets nor do I want to, do lots of low weight high rep stuff, it's much easier on my body and I can actually use endurance in my daily life. Cardio is good too, bike for half hour will get me going pretty good, strong muscles ain't shit if your heart is weak, got to get your heart trained.

Nothing like a good hard leg day! Ive started doing alot more biking on leg day. Seems to help me when I ride. Ill mix in some 20 minute stints on the stationary with my leg routine. Its been pretty good so far.

:spit: i was tellin the guy workin out with me that if my legs do a mr. potato head and pop off call 911. he said will do, bec i aint tryin to pick that shit up

Hellboyt, ive got endurance, had to have it at my last job orderfillin. i just get bored runnin. i dont alwats do heavy sets. i couldve squated 325 last night, but kept at 225. used to have trouble with 225, but now i can go down far enough to spread my asshole open:crackup: which makes more legit butt cheek soreness after.


I just try to go to failure, and i like to see my progress and what strength im gaining. I wait abt a week before i do the same body part again so i dont get monotanus on my muscles.

oh and yea im sore today, im soakin in the tub as we speak:mrgreen:

i'll be waiting.
seriously though i think its important to know your limits, or you'll do serious damage.
im probably talking to a brick wall, but hey, ive been there, done major damage and it made my routine much better and safer
