leg day.

i dont do a whole  lot for legs, still i feel its enough.

warm up with leg extensions. 2 sets
then legpress 4 sets.
then seated legcurl 4 sets.
then finish off with more leg extensions. 2 sets

felt good, i reached the weight goals i had in mine, progress slowly but steadily. im confident this is all i need, twice a week to get my legs growing.

calves is lacking, dont like the standing calf machine. ill do one leg calves at home.
tomorrow is day off.

i do 12-15 reps on leg extensions

pretty slow and controlled, im not convinced its completely harmless on the knees so i take it easy with it

i do my pes high volume + focus xt combo now which seems to work pretty well! both got the cotton candy flavor and im getting addicted to the smell of it  Cheesy

your leg training is very basic, you should in my opinion split your legs into 2 days. Train Hammies hard with buns(my favourite day) and the other day Quads. In this way you can still do a 4 day split with upper/lower. If you take a girls advice Kiss

did lat pulldowns, rows, incline bench, lateral raises

went up in weight on hammer curls, hurt my elbows a little more than usual but boy otherwise it felt good, huge difference from working with a weight i can get 12 reps with and a weight where i have to make an effort to get 8 or 10, the whole feeling in the biceps afterwards is different, pump etc. it feels like its growing right there and then.

i love hammers
I just saw a tip where u keep the dbs on the front on your body, not on the sides

Careful with your elbows-stretch and massage your tris and forearms and wrists

Lastly...where's the kraken?Huh?

ok training day.

but i was pumping myself upp too much before hand and the energy/strength just wasnt there.

thats what you do sometimes i guess.

thinking youre ready to add more weight to the bar when youre really not.

very few people at the gym so cant complain about that.

tomorrow = legs

for whatever reason i skipped legday this week, doing it tonight.

did upper body yesterday.

back
shoulders before chest, usually the other way around but i feel i would prioritize shoulders for a bit
chest

ive heard people train their abs, maybe i should try that sometime  Wink

im not doing that abwheel though, thats painful

did legs.

3 sets of legpress
3 sets of seated leg curl

yes it may not result in 100 percent growth, maybe just 75% but 75% is enough
feels pretty good to go to the gym and be in and out so quickly and not have to feel "oh uh, leg day"

had a break from the gym but im looking to get back - any day now  Roll Eyes

here's my new routine 5 sets of 5, three times a week:

row or pulldowns.
lateral raises
bench
legpress
seated legcurls

few exercises to keep it short and sweet yet with only 5 reps per set should keep it interesting to see what kinda weights i can move.
some would argue its not ideal for hypertrophy, we'll see about that  Cheesy
