just sharing, not sure what im gonna do today i guess depends on how i feel, i gotta rush my workout too ill def do some widows though
i'm going to do a set of widows today. i'm shooting for 205x20, since last time i did 185x20. by rep 14 i had to start taking deep breaths and loger breaks to get my energy levels back up.
alright i gotta brag, huffing and puffing typing this just got 2 new personal records in a row too hah
-only like 30s rest btw 1rep max and widows
I will be doing 20 reppers in about 45 min. got to put on my game face.
Just did DC style today.....
210 x 25 (fairly easy. I underestimated myself)
Next week, i think im gonna try (no, im gonna do!) 225lbs
Yikes, I got mad DOMS today...did widows for the first time last night.
135 x 12
225 x 10
315 x 10
335 x 8
365 x 5
225 x 20
I could go higher on the widows next time...didn't die too bad, but man am I sore today!
Going to throw those on the end from now on.
225x20,... previous best 185x20 at the end of last year. I wanna thank you guys for the motivation,.. really gotta prep your mind for these!!!!
Think training's hard,. try losing!

luv em.... been doin DC since Jan. and none of my pants or shirts are fitting anymore,.. that sux. But besides that,.. I love DC. Ill do a 5x5 for warm ups and then the widowmaker high rep set, usually in the mid 20's. Between that and the forced stretches, I wished I found out about this stuff a long time ago.
Oh, and 100% agree on the increase in calories,... I though i was getting plenty before DC,.. I was quite wrong.
I recently did this last Friday, 20 reps with 225 which made me feel like my quads were tearing every rep after my 10th rep. I barely finished the other 10 reps, it felt like forever. Really bad form most likely lol, but it was pretty sweet.
I had to do 135 for 20 after that and I was struggling like hell with it.
Oh, and I ended up vomiting afterwards. First time for me. Blech.
DC legs last nite.
Completed 220 x 21 (up 10lbs) and still in my rep range of 20+
Funny thing is that after my hard set of 280x7, i waited for 7-8min, and i get really nervous in a sense before my widowmaker. Funny how the 20rep squats really test you mentally....bigtime.
Tomorrow is squat day...going for 235x20 (up 10 pounds).
tomorrow is squat day for me too,... gonna go for either 245-250 x 25+(crossing fingers). I didn't think i would be able to heal up after my last leg day with heavy hack squats,... still got bruises on top of my traps from that damm thing, lol.
