I normally wait about four days before hitting squats or dead lifts, in the same week, but this post-vacation week has forced me to hit them after only resting two days. With that being said, I kept the volume up and the weight low. Here’s how it all went down:
Started with some full body stretching before getting on an elliptical machine for 10 minutes.
After that, I got to work.
Exercise: weight x reps x sets
Sumo deadlifts: 135 x 5 x 1, 185 x 5 x 5
Worked on my form and speed.
Low-bar squats: 135 x 10 x 5
Mixed paused reps with speed sets. Thought I was going to die.
Lying machine leg curls: 45 x 10 x 2, 50 x 12 x 2
Worked towards hypertrophy on that last exercise (said like Bradd Pitt in “Inglorious Bastards”.
After all of this non-sense, my legs were TOASTED!
Tomorrow, I attack Upper Body (again).
