LEGS
10 min bike

Essentially everything was a couple warm up sets and then 2 sets of 8 then rest pause to 15-20

Seated leg curls @ 150
Seated extensions @ 190
Pinloaded leg press @ 290

walking db lunges 2x20 (no rest pause on these)
good girl/bad girls 2x15 (no rest pause)

I should've added some pyramid sets of goblet squats, next leg day for sure.

Tomorrow will most likely be a cardio day. Planning on 10min interval bike, 10 min row, 20 min walking incline. Back in peak shape, I would alternate 30-40 minutes of stairs one day, with 12-15 minutes of sprint intervals the next. Working my way back to this.

New supps ordered today:
Muscle Vault Clump and Pump Mango Tango x2
SWFT Stims Pump Pink Starblast x2
Primeval Labs EAA Max Pineapple Mango x2

There was a bunch of BOGO's so I thought I'd take advantage. Should come later this week and I'll let you know how each of them are.

You know how I said I was going to do cardio today? Well naturally I got to the gym and decided to do a pull. So the first half of the week is the rest pause gritty training, the second half is going to be volume, super sets etc, so taxing in a different way. This progression aspect will be heavily focused on the first half.

Everything was about 10-15 reps in supersets with about 1 minute rest in between, did about 4 sets of each.

  1. Neutral pull ups with straight arm rope pulldowns
  2. pin loaded lat pulls with horizontal rows
  3. upright cable rows with face pulls
  4. db side lateral raise with rear delts on pec dec
  5. reverse cable curls with rope hammer curls
  6. standing db curls
So tomorrow will be a pull day in a similar fashion, then leg day in a similar fashion, then I'll revert back to the hard stuff on the next pull day.

Volume push day followed that last pull day:
  1. cable flys SS with pushups
  2. incline db flys SS with dips
  3. pin loaded press
  4. db shoulder press
  5. seated pin loaded shoulder press
  6. various tricep press downs on cables
I know these volume workouts aren't super impressive, and a lot of what I do is pretty simple.

Also, my legs were a little sore still so I took a rest day, I also wasn't very hydrated. I'm skipping a volume leg day and heading straight into my density pull session tonight.

I feel okay skipping a leg day every now and then, my legs overshadow the rest of my body, specifically the quads.

New supps came in! I'll post again in a couple hours after my pull session.
