I’m officially at the 4 week point. 14 leg workouts in 28 days. I can say that while I thought I was over the hump at the 3 week point, it only got harder this week. lol
The interesting thing is that after REALLY struggling during the 13th and 14th workout and being VERY flat (I’ve probably lost close to 20lbs of body weight…although I am much leaner), I’m starting to fill back out and feel sort of rested again these past two days. I don’t have a scale at home, but I think I’m back up a few lbs of water/fullness and I’ll be interested to see if that continues.
Horizontal Calf raise:
5 x 20
3 x 15
Lying leg curls:
5 x 20,15,12,10,8
6 x 20,20,15,12,10,8
Dumbell Stiff leg deadlifts:
5 x 20,15,12,10,8
Horizontal Leg press:
This was probably the hardest workout to date. I don’t think I’ve ever felt so depleted during a workout outside of the final weeks of a contest prep.
The interesting thing was that rather than having NO appetite after training, I finally felt starving after training and was able to eat better than I have in weeks (I’ve been struggling to get my post workout meals down, but this day I was able to add carbs to both meals after training)
At the 4 week part I feel like my hams and calves have made the biggest changes. My legs are very noticeably leaner than they were 4 weeks ago (much more than my upper body) and my hams and calves have seem to gained a decent amount of size (as far as what you can do in 4 weeks).
I feel comfortable in saying that my hamstrings have never had as much “drop” as they do in the pic I posted with the 13th leg day. I also feel comfortable in saying that my legs are now my stand out body part.
Now….as I’ve said before….how much of that is the fact that my legs look better and how much of it is the fact that I’ve lost weight and probably all of it is in my upper body will remain to be seen.
