Week 2 day 3

leg day 1 quads and hamstrings and calves
Kind of messed my set up today , went up a bit more than last week thinking I was going to get 160kg for 4 reps but managed 2 so dropped it back down to 150kg the same as last week .not in my desired rep range but still over loaded the muscle I guess .

pretty much up on everything this week and the last set of my squats . But back down to 2 sets next week of course for my usual 4-8 reps on squats. Leg extensions machine still broken , so back on the sissy squats again this week

pic attached , just to give an idea of depth , always prefe to come down until my hamstrings touches my calves then I go back up that way I know I achieved same depth each rep


Arm Shorts Sleeve Thigh Gas


Not the greatest of legs but would like to bring them up this bulk . Who doesn’t want massive legs after all !

all seems very slow process at the moment with muscle memory , cannot actually wait to go on cycle ! But will do it correctly and not rush . First things bloods ect


Complete day off tomorrow on everything then Saturday I will start my next push session

Pic not taken today , but just an idea of what sissy squats look like for the people who are unaware , absolute killer on the quads , body weight is harder than doing them on hacks .

post push session pic , terrible lighting in this gym and I am not one to take my top off in gym floor .

So I have been on this push pull legs throughout my whole cutting routine , I have basically gone from cut to lean bulk using same program . I do feel now that I am training harder I am going to need more recovery time so I will be Finnish out this week abs starting a new plan where I hit a muscle every 6 days instead of the 4 days I have now . At the end of the day , rest is very important . So I have prepared a 5 day split , I will still be using my 2 sets as I don’t feel the need to ad in extra sets for the sake of doing so , but I will be adding in more exercise since I will be having more recovery time but nothing excessive and rep ranges be pretty much same as now .I will also be splitting up quads and hamstrings as I don’t feel I can fully get 100 percent out of my hamstrings once I have done a heavy quad workout which is why I have alternated in my current routine I am on now push pull legs . Anyway this is what I will be starting once this week out of the way . Calves and abs will be trained twice weekly , smaller muscles less recovery time . Also I can’t seem to go without being out of the gym 1 day I prefer to train every day so this will suit me quite nicely

So leg day today , decided to throw it in before I did any damage . was squatting and noticed I had a nagging left quad , old injury and rather than carry on and put my self out for months on end stopped the session . I will be resting up for the next few days before I start my 5 day split as mentioned other day . Back on it in a few days or so

Been there and I know you don't want to quit, but the best decision was made. Hard to do when into your training but like you have said, not worth it and get injured. Well done there!
