So here is the first of many blogs over the course of the next 12 weeks. The purpose of this blog/diary is to just give you an idea of how i train my self and most importantly keep myself motivated. Coming in to the 4th week of Bensons Sports Massages being opened at LS Fitness, everything has been a bit hectic getting everything organised. However, everything has fallen into place and business is booming, which leaves me to get back onto training. What better way to start back with training legs!!!
The sesion was kept really simple this morning, a standard Multiple set approach just to get back into the groove of things.
Barbell Squats 2 x warm up sets 60kg 2 x 12 reps
Barbell Squats 1 x 10 reps 80kg
Barbell Squats 1 x 5 reps 100kg
Notes: each time i train squats i make sure i get a FULL ROM and this involves me going down as far as possible. NO HALF REPS! bad points about today was the fact i felt myself giving away to the weight on 100kg, this means more strengthening work and really honing in on the technique of the squat particularly on the lighter high rep weight.
Barbell stiff leg deadlifts 2 x warm up sets 60kg 2 x 12
Barbell stiff leg deadlifts 1 x 12 reps 80kg
Barbell stiff leg deadlifts 1 x 8 reps 100kg
Lying leg curl 1 x 15 reps 30kg
lying leg curl 2 x 10 reps 45 kg
leg extension 1 x 15 reps 56 kg
leg extension 1 x 15 reps 77kg
leg extension 1 x 12 reps 98kg
Workout complete. This is a remarkably basic leg workout just to get back into the swing of things and find my feet again after a three week lay off from training. I kept the speed of the movements steady and controlled, and incomparison to past training sessions have kept the weight very light so not injure myself. Relatively happy with how todays first sessions went. Now its time to rest and get fed ready for round two with my training partner Zak Marshall.
