Ended up training solo this day and I was really struggling. We had a snow storm expected the following day and my wife is past her due date with her pregnancy. I have a plow for my truck so I wanted to make sure it was all set up in case we needed to plow our way to the hospital, but it turns out something is f’d up with the seals on the hydraulics and I spent all f’n afternoon working on the damn thing.
There wasn’t a leg workout yet during this EOD program that I wanted to skip as much as this one, but I cleaned all the damn hydraulic fluid off my hands and headed to the gym.
I picked 6 weeks for the program because I got the idea from Roddo Baynes. If I were to do it again I think I’d cut it off at the 4 week mark because after that point it’s been more of a mental experiment than a physical one. 6 weeks is a LONG time to walk around with permanently sore legs
Leg press calf raises:
Standing dumbell one-leg calf raises:
3×12 50lb dumbell
3×20 body weight (superset)
Lying leg curls:
Single leg leg press:
Stiff leg deadlifts:
Smith Machine squats:
We just got a new smith machine at the gym (after not having a working one for over a year. It’s heavy as shit…the damn bar has to weigh 85lbs lol, but it’s smooth and stable so it’ll definitely be a part of my routine now)
Seated leg curls:
I barely even remember this workout lol. I was tired and sore and had to train solo, but I think I got a decent workout out of it. It was the first time I’ve been able to do smith machine squats this whole training cycle so that was nice. Coupled with the fact that our hack squat is almost un-useable, the smith machine squats definitely hit a few fibers that haven’t been getting hit….because I was more sore than usual after this workout….which is especially of note because the rest of the workout sucked.
