Did some good chest work yesterday. Legs tonight, gonna kill it. Heavy leg pres, heavy lunges, deads and some calf work. tomorrow..not sure. depends on how i'm feeling and my energy levels. I'll need to do my back one of those days either tomorow or sunday. then either some shoulders or arms. whichever I'm feeling up to. Shoulders is probably the bigger need at the moment

Mine is simple as well. I've pretty much taken out barbell squats. Subbed them for other exercises I felt put less pressure on my knees.

Heavy leg press.
Heavy db walking lunge, alternating between deep and shorter lunges to emphasis either the hams or the quads.
Deadlift
Calf work.
1 hr in & out.

if you're sick then rest up so you can go at it at 100% quicker

if it's just a sore throat then take a hot shower and go put in work.

sidenote, my bum *** knee has kept me from doing legs for like 2 weeks now. feelsbadman

Idk man, I've been supersetting squats with lunges for awhile now. I may switch it up and have lunges and squats be a stand alone exercise though.

Thinking doing:

Squats
Lunges
Leg Press x superset with calf rises (Don't work my calves enough)
Leg curls x superset with leg extensions

Was it on this forum where I read Leg extensions are bad for your knees? nerd.gif

yea, unnecessary pressure on the knees. and an unnatural movement that you wont be performing out in the real work. just unnecessary overall. try and shorten up on your lunges. dont go down quite as far, you'll feel a great burn in the quads from this.

Just brought some vibrams. I'm going to try them out on my legs days. I still got to get Rehband 7051 and I'm also looking into Inzer belts (or any off brand like it)

All reverse pyramid style, then I crawl to my car

Also to Marvelous Marvin Hagler,
I'd advise against using the smith for squats (or anything for that matter), unnatural fixed movement.
Free weights is always best, if they don't have them at your gym it's definitely time to switch

Dam achilles injuries are the worse. I suffer from tendonitis of the achilles. It seems that the more often i train legs the better they get. Hope you fully healed from that. What rehab did you do to recover from that?

Wish I could, but the next closest gym is quite a few miles away from me.

Planet Fitness is about 1 mile away from my house. Might just get off using the smith machine for squats and just do dumbell squats. ohwell.gif

so today was leg day right...but after hearing about all those senseless killings across the world today, it completely drained me. It extinguished my fire. I had no raw power to push through legs. So I did shoulders and forearms. still very productive. Deltoids looking like dwight howard lol.

Damn. I feel you. Me on the other hand still haven't got the energy to get up and go. I'm pretty sure I have strep. But y'all telling me to go is making me feel like a *****...

Another picture from the summer.. Looking to contribute a lot to this thread.. Yeah Football..

Thanks for the concern about my Achilles.. For PT I am doing various stretching, leg presses, calf raises, balancing on foam.. My next step is trying to jump on a trampoline.. My injury was the most severe being that it was not at the bone like most tears.. But the tendon tore in half.. So recovery is the worst..

My workouts consists of a calisthenics, heavy lifting with great emphasis on the in between sets/rest periods.. I go 3times a week and everyday is full body..
A typical day..
5 minutes on the elliptical (warms up the whole body unlike the bike)
5x5 shoulder lifts.. Light to warm up
12/8/6 Dumb bell bench press (Barbells allow your dominant hand to carry more of the weight) with burn out push-ups between each set (wide, diamond, reg)
6/8/12 barbell squats (going up in weight requires your best form) with burn out pull ups between (wide, narrow, muscle up)
Back extensions with 45 with 3 sets of 15
Skull crushers 3 sets of 15
Ending with muscle ups or pull ups..

I don't have a true ab routine but I have learned your diet is the biggest factor to your core..
