Heavy Squats

I’m on a serious mission to improve my legs. Today is Monday….also synonymous with Leg Day in my book. Tricia wasn’t feeling well today, so I worked out on my own at Hyde Park Gym. Since I wouldn’t be slowing anyone down by stringing together a long workout, I decided to do some really heavy squatting. I started with the heavy half-squats and “just above parallel” squats that I did in my split routine last week. I followed that with some heavy full squats (below parallel). I did a number of singles and worked up to the heaviest full squat I’ve done in years, but I didn’t go to a complete max. I finished the squatting session with a good set of full squats at 315 and then several sets of very deep squats at 225. It didn’t take a whole lot of leg pressing before I was absolutely wiped out. I really had to push myself to get leg curls and extensions done. I slammed a Pro Fusion Protein drink immediately after the workout and then took about a 30 minute nap on the floor of my office. Yes, totally wiped out!!!
