Another Promising Leg Workout


Today went really well.  My leg is feeling so much better...at least it was until after my workout today.  I pushed it quite a bit and it felt good to be really exhausted after a leg workout.  I was able to squat 95 lbs for 15 reps today.  It doesn't sound like much, but 2 weeks ago I couldn't squat the olympic bar.  I know I have a long way to go, but it feels great to be making such rapid progress right now!

Squats  6 set 10-15 reps

Leg Press 6 sets 20-30 reps (I was able to do 360 lbs for 2 sets of 30 reps)

Lying Leg Curls (these still hurt the tendon alot) 2 sets 12 reps

Seated Leg Press 3 sets 20 reps each leg

Seated Leg Curl 4 sets 12-15 reps each leg

Leg Ext 4 sets 12 reps each leg

Standing Calf Raise 4 sets 15 reps

Donkey Calf Raise 3 sets 15 reps

I had to lie down and ice my leg after the workout.  It's pretty sore right now.  I expect it will be a little swollen and stiff tomorrow, but usually by the 3rd day it's feeling better than before.
