Heavy legs day - felt heavy, and no more BP meds!

Squats:  135x5, 225x5, 315x5, 365x2x1, 315x2x5

I've been dealing with a bad outbreak of acne for the past few months on my back and chest.  I am on testosterone cream for replacement, but it shouldn't have been enough for this level of breakout.  In any case, I saw my doctor and he put me on 2 months of doxycycline, which is supposed to be a good treatment for acne.  I've read some people are on it for a year or more.

Anyhow, why do I mention acne?  Because it really hurts to low bar squat when you have cystic acne being crushed under hundreds of pounds.  Anyhow, my most recent zone is right along my squat areas of the upper back, and it's just miserable to squat.  So - I quickly worked up to my max, backed down for two more sets.

I then did leg extension working at sets of 10-15 up to the entire stack for a set of 3.  No leg discomfort today with this movement.  (last week my right knee was causing me grief).  The leg press machine was down, so I finished up with 2x20 reps of kettlebell swings with a 35 lb bell.

Dieting is going good, and with the cardio I've actually managed to get off of my high blood pressure medications.
