Today's leg workout was fantastic! Best one in a very long time thanks to all the compound movements I did.
-Ran a moderate 5.6 miles of hills (45min)
- Seated calf raises 2x10 w/ 2 45lb plates; 1x10 with 45+25lb plates
- Front Squat: bar x10, 95x5, 135x5, 155x3 for 2 sets, then 5 reps for 3 sets I'm not sure why but I got more confident and did sets of 5 after sets of 3 and it felt incredible.
Romanian Deadlift: 135x10 for 3 sets. I really felt the stretch and contraction in my quads and hamstrings, but I could tell I was having a tough time keeping my back straight for these. Felt great on the legs though
Back Squat: 185x5 for 5 sets: Felt great. It felt great and I could really tell when there was temptation to let form degrade but I resisted that and really felt a contraction and use of my asss cheeks to keep that bar going up completely vertically with no lateral movement (lurching forward)
Dumbbell Lunges: set of 10 on each leg holding 25s
Ham Curl: 12-10-8-6-4 with 8 seconds rest \___> These made my legs feel like they were on fire, great feel to end the workout.
Quad Curl: 12-10-8-6-4 with same rest
