Lower body

Tues, 13 Feb 18

Leg press (plates): 4x15, 6x15, 8x15, 10x10, 12x10, 10x10, 8x10, 6x10
Leg extension (separate leg machine): 70x15, 80x15, 90x15, 100x10, 110x10, 100x10, 90x10, 80x10
Standing calf raises: 250x5x10
Kettlebell swings:  25x50, 25x30, 25x30

Glutes. Are. Fried.  That is all.

Not really.  The leg press was good.  I had a nice wide stance and good depth.  The leg extension was hard but I got a really good pump of the teardrop. The standing calf raises were just for variety, and I can easily say that 20 reps with 70 lbs on the seated beats the hell out of 250x10 standing.  I expect it's because I'm using a whole pile of muscles to assist when standing, while isolating quite a bit while seated.  Kettlebell swings hammered my glutes and cardio.  I had to sit down after the first two sets.  I went both 10, left 10, right 10, both 10, right 5, left 5.  Then b10, r10, L10, and repeat for the last set.  I was kind of surprised I actually managed the 50 reps.

Sorry to ask you to verify, but the sunglass spammers have been going crazy.
