Friday Deadlifts and Squats

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).
