Yeah, good to know that you've worked them as hard as possible, and its a good feeling in a weird sort of way, but still hate leg days!

Good leg session there keeks looks like she's working you hard, how long does it take sets reps etc.. second time on legs now with PT so you'll soon get use to it and when you do push it a bit more :D and lets hope you get the DOMS and not the wobbly descent, hold on to the banister and be PLEASE safe :)

JEEEEEZZZZZZZZ!!!! Gym stairs have never been scarier! Tried a pre workout drink today for first time today, just got a sample of Plasma Vapour so though i'd give it a go. Felt very hyper going into work out, more energy, but legs & lower back didn't half pump up, especially lower back after stiff legged deads!

3 Sets leg extensions very light just to warm through legs

3 x 20 walking lunges

3 x 20 jump squats - by this time legs were burning like hell

Missed out glute ham raises as couldn't find anything to hook my legs

Stiff legged deads 1 x 25 with 10kg db's, 3 x 20 with 12.5kg db's

4 x 15 smith machine squats, no weight but olypmic bar, coming down really low, feet wide apart then tillting pelvis when at top.

Legs are still throbbing a bit now, bloody good work out! :thumb:

Wait until you wake up tomorrow,after lying still in bed for a few hours you seem to stiffen up (muscle wise!!) and getting out of bed is wobbly, then going downstairs for a cuppa is interesting!!

Yep, my legs stiffen through the night, but I wake up several times during the night so have a really good stretch each time I wake up, seems to help a little bit. My worse time though is at work, I've got a desk job and the day after legs, around mid aft, it really seems to hit. Have to keep getting up and walking about, otherwise they get super stiff, not good!

Seems my predictions were bob on, serious doms today! I love changing or adding next exercises in though as when doms set in, you can really feel where its hittings.

Upper body circuits and abs today followed by HIIT on X Trainer.

Hopefully I can keep this up for the next 6 weeks or so and see some decent results.

Gotta be done, no pain, no gain and all that!

Just seen that pic of Heather, and saw the feature in Flex. I tell you, if I look half as good as her when I get on stage this year, I'll be a happy gal. Its stuff like that that keeps pushing me along. Great motivation!
