Deadlifts/Leg Extensions

Thurs, 13 Oct 16

Deadlifts: 135x10, 225x10, 315x5x5
Leg Extensions (single):  40x20, 50x10, 60x10, 70x8 (r), 70x3 (l), 60x10, 50x10, 40x15

I kept the weight down as my quad is still tender today and hurts with certain motions.  (Seated carpet pull movement, going up stairs).  I did my deadlifts sumo style to minimize the effort on that area of the quad.  They went well, snappy and pain free.  Straps to ensure that I got a good workout.  I was going to do power shrugs, but couldn't get a rack, so I decided to do light single leg extensions.  I kept the weight really low, mostly for pump and range of motion.  I used my right leg to initiate the left leg sets as I couldn't even push 40 from a dead stop - I needed the stretch reflex to keep it moving.  I went as slow as I could, focusing on the medialis and the VMO.
