Today was leg day. And, once again, I was significantly stronger. Last week I was able to squat 155 for 10 reps and 135 for 15. Today I went 2 sets of 185 lbs for 10 reps each and finished with 155 for 15. I also went up on the leg press from 410 lbs for 15 reps on my heaviest set last week, to 450 lbs for 2 sets of 20 reps today. By the time I got to leg curls and leg extentions my hamstring and my whole left knee was getting extremely sore, so I cut those a little short….although I was able to go up a little in weight. It’s been about 2 hours since I finished my workout and right now my knee is really really hurting. It was like this last week after my workout and felt much better the following day. I’m hoping that’s how it goes again. If not, I’m gonna be using a cane again tomorrow.
